My virtual Irish cycling tour: phase 2, day 7

Today I was up early to day seven of phase 2 of my virtual Irish cycling tour (via stationary bike and Google Earth’s Street View). I followed the North Road in Gortnaclohy along the Cork Road to Smorane. 2.0 km and 20 minutes.

Gortnaclohy has a compact core, with a narrow street lined with businesses, places to eat and apartments.

It took a round-about to show me I have been cycling on the wrong side of the road! They drive on the left hand side of the road in Ireland!

At last, evidence of faerie-folk! A lime green side road with purple foliage!
