    Default An Irish transport map



    I saw this map and burst my sides laughing. Only in Ireland would a transport system include a long section of walking. This map would have been fine without the symbol of a walking man, but by including the symbol, the Luas people have underlined the ridiculousness of our urban planning.

    As a nation we are pretty self-congratulatory, moments like this help bring me back down to earth. The Ireland of yesteryear still
    lives.
    You can't read it all

    Surely that's a prank?

    What a laughing stock we are. No wonder we struggle to build tunnels to ports that will no longer exist and fill the country with 2 lane motorways only to replace them with 3 a few montsh later!!

    WE ARE A JOKE OF A NATION!!
    It's a long road so play the long game!

    what's the problem? it just shows that it's walking distance. Instead of a bus or taxi being needed.

    When you're accustomed to ascendancy, equality feels like oppression.

    Not in Drumcondra - Phibsboro - Finglas - Cabra - Glasnevin and various other places!

    We do have a crappy bus service so there. We also have a tunnel in Whitehall. Our traffic jams onthe Gracepark are the envy of M50 users.

    This is the railway network that the British oppressors and plunderers left us with.

    When I see what Irish governments have done to this network, it makes me wonder who are the plunderers.

    I suppose it was to get the Master Race about the country, was it?

    If you knew anything about map-making, you'd see that its a perfectly sensible map. Concise and informative. Its clearly telling the reader who gets off the green line at St Stephen's Green that the nearest station on the red line is at Abbey Street. They might not have known that. That's what maps are for: to inform their users of the situation on the ground.
