West of Ireland Roads

County Mayo, in the west of Ireland, is criss-crossed with numerous roads. It is estimated that the county council are responsible for over 6,200 km of roads — 136 km of national primary roads, 271 km  of national secondary roads, 590 km of regional roads and 5,275 km of local roads. Many of these local roads are single track, narrow roads as in the photographs below.

    It must be a major deal when you encounter another vehicle on one of those single lane tracks! I imagine there must be turn offs spaced every so often.
    I love the rusty colors in that first photo – gorgeous landscapes!
