The works on the Lough Atalia Bridge will come to an end on Friday night and, barring unforseen circumstances, the road at the bridge will be open by Saturday morning. However the one-way system which is operating inbound along Lough Atalia Road and outbound at College Rd will remain in place for the next three weeks to trial how it will operate after the road reopens.
“Sure why would ya bother?” Those were the words of Naomh Eoin’s long serving Carlow hurler Robbie Foley on hearing of the original fixing of the Christy Ring hurling final for Croke Park at 7:30pm on Friday night next!

What time do you leave at in order to ensure that you can get through the bank holiday traffic and arrive at the ground in time? Now I’ve devoted most of my columns of the last two weeks to criticising the top brass of the GAA for how they’ve treated the players of the smaller hurling counties and I don’t want to overdo it again this week but I can’t let it go without some comment on the matter.
