The R741 in Ballyedmond, County Wexford

The R741 in County Wexford connects the R730 in Wexford town to the R772 in Gorey via Castlebridge and Ballyedmond. It is a shorter route between the two towns than the higher quality N11 and can be a quicker one too when taking into account Enniscorthy's notorious status as a traffic bottleneck.

The route starts on Commercial Quay, Wexford (part of the old route of the N11), crossing Wexford Harbour Bridge and then turning to head north. Some three kilometres further on, at Ballycrane, the R742 (yet another way of reaching Gorey, this time via the coast) turns off to the right. Our route continues north through Castlebridge, traversing pleasant, if undramatic countryside, marked by no large settlements for the next 35 kilometres.

The R741 is often referred to locally, especially at its northern end, as "The Coast Road" – which is odd, considering that it generally runs some five to seven kilometres inland from the sea! It comes to an end in the centre of Gorey at a signalized junction with the R772 (another part of the former route of the N11) soon after passing the town's railway station.
