    Sign in Killaloe, at the bridge had over three dozen locations. Removed as people found it confusing!

    Is this sort of shoot why extending 20mph limits costs so much? The reverse was the same.

    My first ever cycling tour was a caving trip to Doolin, back around 1980, from Sheffield via the Liverpool - Dublin ferry.
    The others took my caving gear, and most of my other stuff, so I only had to carry day ride stuff and my sleeping gear (hollowfill bag, CCF mat, and an orange plastic survival bag). 5-speed 46 x 14-28, 5mm steel rod rack. The trip out was OK, apart from Winnats being a bit of a struggle, but the return trip was a bit grim - grinding away in bottom gear going down off the Curragh, sliding about across the ferry deck in my survival bag (inside was intolerably full of vomit), and then finding that the normal transpennine rail route was closed due to the weather when I abandoned to Liverpool station (trains still running, but taking the long way round).
    Memories are of a round of drinks being 17 pints of Guinness and a pint of Smithwicks, the barman buying us a free round at the end of the week (O'Connor's), and of a solo Fisherstreet to St Catherines through trip.

    Happy days :smile:

    Are you sure it didn't say "20 zone" on the back? IIRC there's a difference in law between the two. A 20mph limit needs lots of signs, but a 20mph zone only needs signs at the entry and exit.

    Quite sure. I suspect it's a boundary between two 20mph zones, introduced at different times. I'll update this post if I find the legal orders but I doubt I will.
