"L" prefixed roads in RoI

Under the 1993 Roads Act all minor roads in the Republic are numbered on a county by county basis. Each number is prefixed with the letter L. For the best part of two decades most local road numbers however were known only to God and a select handful of selected officials at each county council road department, but in recent years there has been a gradual roll out of directional sign posts displaying the local road number, mainly where they depart from a national or a regional road. Unfortunately, many of these were erected long after Google Street View passed by. Ignored by OSI, Open Street Maps (OSM) are the only maps to show L numbers, but their coverage is very patchy

N70 Road

The N70 runs a "long way round" from Tralee to the N71 at Kenmare, via the County Kerry Coast, a distance of 142km. The majority of the route, along with the northern end of the N71 and western end of the N72 makes up the Ring of Kerry tourist route.

Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry is a 179-kilometre-long circular tourist route in County Kerry. Clockwise from Killarney it follows the N71 to Kenmare, then the N70 around the Iveragh Peninsula to Killorglin passing through Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, and Glenbeigh before returning to Killarney via the N72.
