Ireland’s main roads have improved a lot in the last few years and there are some surprises as you travel around the country. Take this warrior chieftain seated on a horse which you will find at one of Lough Key viewing points on the Dublin-Sligo road. It’s visible from the road but it’s worth taking a few minutes to pull up and have a closer look. Really impressive.
There is also a nice view towards Lough Arrow from the same point.
