The middle of nowhere in earnest. I wondered why they simply didn't put Google Map directions rather than "find the Apple Green service station etc" and then a look at the Streetview as to what the "R132" consists of enlightened me. The decision to route the shuttles to Drogheda even though that means a longer trip for the Dublin market makes sense given the awful road options from Laytown and Gormanston. To have only one connecting option per day seems antithetical to the Irish mindset where if there is only one option we will contrive to miss it because of one last pint/chat/trip to the bog/race.

However the closest point on the railway network is Platin Cement Works
