Attention Motorists – Here Are The Roads To Avoid During Christmas Week


Christmas may be associated with spending time with the family, but for thousands of incredibly hard workers around the country, it’s also a time where work doesn’t stop. 

We, unfortunately, can’t change that. 

But what we can do is inform you of which roads to avoid during the festive season. According to Breaking News, AA Roadwatch is predicting heavy traffic on the following routes between December 19 and 24:

  • M50 southbound from J7 Lucan to J17 M11
  • M7 Dublin/ Limerick Rd especially between J6 Castlewarden and J10 Naas South
  • N40 South Ring Rd in Cork City; particularly between J6 Kinsale Rd and the Dunkettle Interchange
  • N11 Dublin/ Wexford Rd from J5 Bray North to Kilmacanogue
  • N4/ M4 Dublin/ Sligo Rd from Chapelizod Bypass to J7 Maynooth and also further west through Carrick on Shannon
  • N21 Limerick/ Tralee Rd past Patrickswell to Adare and then again to go through Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale
  • N18 Limerick/ Galway Rd through Gort and again further north from Clarinbridge to Oranmore
  • N20 Cork/ Limerick Rd between Mallow and Buttevant

Bookmark this and make yourself aware of other routes. 

You’ll thank us later…
