Dunno.  They've been doing it since I was a kid.  I have no idea.  I'd say every time I use it I'd see someone doing a u turn on it. 

First time using driving up Kennelsfort in a couple of years. I see they've finally started to let more than 3 or 4 cars through at a time now at the junction. Nothing worse than when someone would do a u-turn and about 2 cars could get through after. Used to avoid it as much as I could and take the next one at the Oval.

I’ll let you in on why BSM, and take my word for this having worked 15 odd years on Motorways etc.......

Most drivers are Morons. The stuff Ive see, the incidents I’ve dealt with, the interactions I’ve had in that time have initially amused, but then scared me. Nothing shocks me anymore. If Gardai did their job, there would be no traffic congestion because there would only be a handful of people left driving.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Irish drivers are excellent drivers compared to those in the Middle East. I've lost track of the amount of times I've see a driver miss a turn, stop, and reverse back up a busy road to take the turn they missed. Happened to me in a taxi before.

For example, say you're driving past Littlepace and into Clonee. But you realise that you've missed the turn into Littlepace. So you get as far as the horse stud, stop, and start reversing into oncoming traffic to get into Littlepace. 

I know.

Was wondering about this too.
Was thinking maybe the Open Gate Brewery which they have on Thomas St where they sell their special Brews, or possibly Jimmy Rabbittes on Camden st. Has a big enough smoking/ outdoor area like that.

That may be a less regular occurrence here but it certainly happens more than you’d think and I include turning and driving the wrong way through a 4.5 km tunnel in that.

There was an English footballer named Segar Bastard. He was capped once in 1880.

According to his wikipedia, Sylvain Distin has the most appearances for a foreign outfield player in the premier league. Would have had about 100 guesses before i landed on him.

The man who was rescued 4km off the Kerry coast yesterday by the RNLI was none other than Ruari McSorley. 
He was found 12hrs after he ventured into the water and was surrounded by a pod of dolphins LOL

Idiots I suppose.
I guess that they come over Toll Bridge and stay left thinking its for Lucan (or most likely Liffey Valley) and then realise their mistake.

Well at least he wasn't wasting another country's vital resources by acting like an imbecile.

"President of the Swedish Mountain Rescuers National Organisation Rickard Svedjesten told The Journal that the group were not wearing proper clothing with one wearing shorts. "
