Westbound M7, Derrymore Lower
Passing Location Reference Indicator W115, a second blue sign gives advance notice of a layby 2km ahead. Unlike in the UK, some Irish motorways (including the M7) have laybys.

Location Reference Indicators (LRIs) are deployed along the Irish National (including motorway) dual-carriageway road network and are very similar, both in design and purpose, to the Driver Location Signs (DLS) used in the UK (eg SE3009 : Driver Location Sign at Bence Lane Bridge). The first line of text displayed on an LRI indicates the road being travelled on (in this example, the M9). The second row indicates the compass direction in which the driver is travelling, which can only be N(orth), S(outh), E(ast), or W(est). The third row indicates the number of kilometres from the beginning of the road. These signs are typically placed on the nearside verge and are positioned at 500m intervals.
Irish National Primary Road N7/Motorway M7 (E20)

The N7/M7 route is a national primary road/motorway in Ireland. It runs for 18k km (116 miles), connecting Limerick and Dublin. The majority of the route (between Naas and Limerick) is motorway standard and is designated as the M7 motorway. The road passes through the midlands of Ireland, and acts as a trunk route out of Dublin for the N8 and N9 national primary routes to Cork and Waterford respectively. It forms part of European route E20. The section of the N7 between Naas and the M50 Motorway is the second busiest road in the country with frequent daily tailbacks from the Naas North junction on the southbound side.
