Spot on. Looks like the M8 is to continue under the bridge. Currently 
the northbound carriageway splits into both roundabouts (with vigorous 
signposting to use both lanes for both Fermoy and Dublin), and the 
southbound is only linked from one.

I've taken the bypass before (and again, I have logs of that, somewhere) 
so this time I followed the old route; next weekend I'll take the bypass 
again en route to Scotland, and upload the log before I lose it :-)

Realistically I'm not going to find time in the next two weeks for a 
variety of reasons, so anyone else is more than welcome to pitch in.

I should have an old log from Cork to Galway too, and many from Cork to 
Limerick (return journeys all). Remind me to have a dig for those if I 
haven't already uploaded them to the API.
