Irish Roads

I am telling you, Irish roads are like the staircases at Hogwarts. Every time you go out your door everything has changed, changed utterly. The lay-out is different, there are new roundabouts, and you end up shooting past places you intended to visit. In fact, all of Ireland is under construction. What Brendan Behan once said about Toronto is now applicable to his own home, i.e. "it'll be great when it's finished." But, alas, it may not be great at all. It may be ruined, ruined utterly.

That's so sad. I must get there in time to see the Ireland you write about...

It's still here folks! I'm a local! Lols at the post btw, but our roads are but one of the many mind boggling attractions on offer. Come to Dublin and marvel at how we tried to get rid of the drug problem with a giant needle! Gaze in bewliderment at our two tramlines - which never meet! Ponder why the only vaguely straight stretch of road we have is called the North Circular Road! And as a souvenir, take home one of our unuseable electronic voting machines! Now availble as a family boardgame!
