N11

The N11 as it passes through the town of Ferns, Co. Wexford. This is on a quiet Sunday in July, normally this road would be extremely busy with traffic heading to and from Rosslare.

N11

The N11 as it makes its way into Ferns, Co. Wexford. The photo is taken July 08 looking north from the grounds of the cathedral. The town of Ferns badly needs bypassing.

Link road - Coppermine - 19897.JPG
Link road

Another view of the R 741-742 link road at the Gorey bypass. Visible on the right is the 500 m advance sign for exit 23. Both the R 741 & 742 serve Wexford town, but this is not signed in order to encourage Wexford bound drivers to use the N11 via Ferns & Enniscorthy. The R 741 is a quicker and in fact more direct route to Wexford town. July 08.

I suspect both Arthurstown and Wellngton Bridge are named after the same man. Signage in Wexford is improving rapidly with relatively few mistakes given the volume.

Sign with no Irish - Coppermine - 11543.jpg
Sign with no Irish

An opposite example from Wexford with no Irish transalations. Also odd about this sign is the use of the international railway station logo. Railway stations do not often appear on official signage, with Iarnrod Éireann-Irish Rail usually erecting its own signs (variously using TSM-style or IÉ corporate style depending on their mood at the time!). In Bray there is a an official TSM sign with the IÉ logo on it, but thats a rarity.

The sign is funny. It points straight across Waterford Harbour at the sister town of Passage East in county waterford. Good luck driving that!

Dog Fouling Signage in Wexford on Sunday, 13th January, 2013.jpg
A somewhat local authority sense of humour here but it gets the message across.
Wexford, County Wexford (2) - Geograph - 1848214.jpg
New Ross Road roundabout is on the New Ross Road where the N11 starts. It indicates you can get a very large meal down the N11 - maybe at Ferrycarrig? The stringy looking trees behind the hedge are oak trees and they are not in great shape. The perils of "instant trees" - and folk who have more money than arboricultural nous!
