Dublin to Waterford Motorway now open

Today, Thursday 9th September 2010 marks a very significant day for anyone living in the Waterford (or South Kilkenny area) of Ireland. Finally, after more years than I care to remember, we can celebrate the reality of a fully uninterrupted motorway from Waterford to Dublin.

It may seem trivial (and even archaic) to some readers, but take it from me, this is a really big deal in this part of the country and so very long overdue. At long last, the Sunny South East will be a perfectly manageable (and comfortable) distance from our capital city, and should make day-trips, holidays and visiting friends and family and much less stressful experience.

  1. It is very welcome indeed. It isn’t just the reduction in time but also the increase in safety. No more will I have to avoid boy racers doing 80kph around the bend at Jerpoint Abbey, 1 foot from 12th century stone work.
