The M8 southwest along the Galtees.

The M8 southwest along the Galtees. While the landscaping along the Cashel-Mitchelstown scheme is very poor, on a clear day the route offers stupendous views of the Galtees, Knockmealdowns, the Golden Vale, and even, on sharp days, Slievenamon and the Comeraghs.

M8 Cashel - Mitchelstown

This section was originally opened as the N8, and was subsequently reclassified as M8 in September 2008. The road had a solid hard shoulder from its opening earlier in the year, so only the signage had to be changed.

Parking areas are provided, even though the ones on the M9 were closed up prior to reclassification as a motorway. There isn't much protection here from errant vehicles straying into the parking area.

M8 Cullahill-Cashel Terminus Signage - Coppermine - 20798.jpg
M8 Cullahill-Cashel Terminus Signage

Please give credit to Furet on Boards.ie for this great picture. This shows the signage at the terminus of the M8 at Cullahill. Traffic converges and leaves the motorway through a rather odd slip-road to the right. Notice the old 'N8' is referred to as the R639 now (as all sections of the N8 that are replaced with M8 become R639). Also, once again we have ugly motorway patching, but it's a terminal junction so no worries.

Please give credit to Furet over on Boards.ie for this great picture. This shows junction 4, Urlingford, nearly complete. Just some landscaping and signing to do here, but it's looking good.
