Schull and Ballydehob Speed Limits
Ron McEricsson

There was uproar recently in West Cork when a speed limit of 80 kph was enforced on a grassy laneway off the main Schull-Ballydehob road.

This pic was sent to us by local boy Ron McEricsson, whose parents, most likely called Love and Peace moved to the area during the Cold War to be best positioned for nuclear fallout.

Ah c'mon lads

'For a start the road surface is very rough.", writes Ron, "driving on the thing is like a rodeo ride but, in fairness with the green grass growing all the way along the centre of it who in God's name thought this sign was necessary? Seriously, like, who's going to be doing more than 50 kph down this little boreen? Anyone doing more than 60kph would lose their chassis."

Ron finds its hard to believe how workmen could have made a conscious decision to spend time erecting it.

"When the workmen were trying to squeeze their tiny van up the lane to erect this, did it ever occur to them that there was something up? Did anyone say 'ah c'mon lads this is ridiculous' or think about phoning the knob who gave it the go-ahead? For feck sake like. "
