How do I know if a road is public or if I'm trespassing?

2020.06.02 19:52 rooood How do I know if a road is public or if I'm trespassing?

Hey all,
I want to find some decent gravel/off road bike routes, and looking through Street View I see many small roads that have a gate in their entrance, like this one near the Wicklow mountains:,-6.3986277,3a,50.8y,288.72h,83.12t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1s3obML3N708EK6ANV8xerYQ!2e0!!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en&authuser=0
However, there's no indication that this is private land, and the gate seems to be there just to stop cars, as there's no fence and you can see a footpath around it to the right. Judging by this I assume anyone can enter it?
I'm mentioning this specific piece of road because by following it you can arrive at a quarry (I think, I just have Google's satellite imagery of the place to base my findings) with no other gates in the way, which seems a little sketchy.
Can I assume that for gates like this, if there isn't an indication that it's private, it means it's public road?
Btw, does anyone know decent gravel roads for cycling around Dublin that aren't all small dead end paths, and aren't instead just MTB trails?

2019.02.11 19:50 TC577 Advice on road trip through Ireland

My family will be going to Ireland for 5 days in July as part of a larger 14 day Europe trip. I know that is not a lot of time, but we are planning on renting a car and driving a loop starting and ending in Dublin. This will be my third time in Ireland and my sister's second. My mom has never been and she wants to see as much as possible. And I figure since it's July the Sun won't set until late. Here's our itinerary so far:
Day 1: Early flight to Dublin from Paris. Rent a car at the Dublin airport and drive to Kilkenny stopping at Glendalough along the way. Explore Kilkenny and pubs (Total driving time: 2 h 30 min)
Day 2: Leave Kilkenny. Stop at Rock of Cashel, Quin abbey, (Possible stop at Limerick or Bunratty) on way to Ennis. Seems like theres not a whole lot to do in Ennis so most likely just go to some pubs and walk around. (Total driving time 2 h 30 min)
Day 3: Leave Ennis and go to Cliffs of Moher. After cliffs of Moher have lunch in Doolin and drive through the Burren to Kinvarra to see Dunguaire Castle. Then onto Galway where we will spend the night. (Total driving time: 2 h 10 min)
Day 4: Leave Galway and head to Dublin in the morning. Not really sure what to stop and see along the way. Return the rental car to the airport and go to some pubs and experience night life in Dublin (Total driving time 2 hr 10 min)
Day 5: Explore some of Dublin before catching a flight to Reykjavik
9 h 20 min driving in total

Mostly I'm looking for advice on whether or not this is doable in 5 days or if we should take a different route or stop at different places. Specifically between Kilkenny and Ennis and between Galway and Dublin. Also recommendations on where to stay in Country Clare besides Ennis. Thanks.

2017.11.18 15:20 DontWakeTheInsomniac List of Irish flax growers 1796 (over 60,000 names) - to help you smash that brick wall!

I notice a lot of Irish family brick wall posts on this sub - one main issue being the emigration of ancestors before (surviving) State Records begin.
I found an interesting resource of flax growers in Ireland (except Dublin & Wicklow). The list of over 60,000 farmers was published by the Irish Linen Board in 1796 - it lists their name, parish and county.
Cross referencing this source with the Tithe records (1824-37), Cenus 'Fragments' of 1841-51 (if preserved), Griffith's Valuation (1847-1854) as well as other data, court sessions, voter rolls, military records etc.. you may be able to connect these disparate records together to gain a better picture of your tree.
Last but not least, the Landed Estate database isn't just for people with wealthy ancestors - these landlords often kept records of their tenants - and many of these records were preserved in the national archives.

2015.09.27 22:57 VolatileVacuum "How fucked am I?" - Update!

Hey Everyone!
I made it... and my ass is killing me today!
Here's the route we did! I managed to do it in 8 hours and 20 minutes!!
We stopped every 20k or so, and I was taking little breaks a bit more frequently towards the end. I found the first 70k to be pretty fine except for the hills which were very tough. The next 30 were tougher, and the final 40 or so was a real pain in the ass!
I really appreciate all the advice I got here, I was hydrating all day and eating non stop and it paid off in the end!
Right after the cycle, the only pain I had was my ass and a stiff neck. So, in traditional Irish style, I showered and went for pints! Managed to stay going until 2am and then crashed and burned!
Woke up this morning with my still sore ass, a stiffer neck, thighs pretty sore and stiffness in my left knee as well as a major hangover... most of the pain seems to have gone away now though thankfully (except the ass).
All in all, it was a great day out and I'm already trying to organise a day out with the more experienced guys!
Thank you cycling!
Here's the first thread for those of you that missed it! :)

2014.11.17 00:57 Lastofthemojitoes Irish Water Website

Denis O'Brien owns Business Recovery Services Limited.
Business Recovery Services Limited runs
Business Recovery Services Limited is also known as Another 9 and Network Recovery.
Denis O Brien owns the company running Irish Water's website.
Denis O Brien also has a controlling share in Independent News and Media - The Indo, The Sindo, and 13 regional papers. He also has stock in Communicorp - Newstalk, Todayfm, Spin, etc.
Denis O Brien also has a share in Siteserv, who own GMC Sierra. Siteserv/GMCSierra are contracted to install meters, 125,000 at a time, worth $64 million per 125k.
Siteserv was sold off after €110 million was written off its €150 million debt by Anglo Irish Bank/IBRC
Here is part of the Timeline:
*March 22, 2011: The final report of the Moriarty Tribunal is published. The Tribunal concluded that Denis O’Brien made payment to then Fine Gael Communications Minister Michael Lowry of £147,000 and £300,000 in the 1990s. It also found Mr O’Brien supported a loan for Mr Lowry which amounted to a benefit equivalent of £420,000 in December 1999. Mr O’Brien won the competition for the State’s second mobile phone licence in 1995 and the tribunal claimed Mr Lowry “secured the winning” of the licence for O’Brien.
While no adverse finding was made against the current Enviornment Minister Phil Hogan, two chapters in the report also show that the tribunal did not appear to accept the account given by Phil Hogan in relation to two events, namely the circumstances surrounding a donation for a Fine Gael golf event and a lunch meeting involving Denis O’Brien.
The tribunal found Mr O’Brien actively courted Fine Gael with a view to increasing his profile with the party and that Esat Digifone’s marketing director, who was also a Fine Gael supporter, Sarah Carey, was instrumental in proposing events Mr O’Brien sponsored, such as fundraising lunches in Carlow/Kilkenny, Dublin Central, Meath, Wicklow, Dublin West, Westmeath, Dublin South East, Dublin North Central, Dublin South West, Limerick East and Dublin Central and several golf classics. Mr O’Brien gave testimony that he never made a political donation for the purpose of securing the licence.
Mr O’Brien’s largest donation was IR£5,000 for the Wicklow by-election in June 1995, for which Mr Hogan was the director of elections.
In relation to this donation, Mr Hogan told the tribunal that it arose from an enquiry made to him by Ms Carey as to whether Mr O’Brien or Esat could be of assistance to the party – prompting Mr Hogan to mention to her the Wicklow by-election fundraising lunch.
But Ms Carey told the tribunal it was her understanding that Mr O’Brien had spoken to Mr Hogan himself and then agreed to make the donation.
The tribunal sided with Ms Carey’s account of events.
A second donation of IR£4,000 was made to the Fine Gael Golf Classic in October 1995. Mr Hogan was chair of the event’s organising committee.
Ms Carey told the tribunal Mr O’Brien specifically instructed there be ‘no advertising at the gold classic’. She wrote a letter to Mr Hogan saying: “I understand Denis has requested that there are no references made to his contribution at the event.”
The tribunal found that bank drafts used for the Wicklow and golf classic payments were “indicative of a desire for secrecy” over the donations.
Before the golf classic, auctioneer Mark FitzGerald, son of former Taoiseach Garret FitzGerald, said he got a phone call from Mr O’Brien asking him to come to a meeting at Lloyd’s Brasserie in Dublin.
Mr FitzGerald told the tribunal that he was surprised that, when he arrived, Mr O’Brien was sitting with the late TD Jim Mitchell and Mr Hogan. He has said that when he arrived he was asked by Mr O’Brien if he’d heard anything about the mobile phone licence competition, which was then nearing conclusion. Before he died, the late Mr Jim Mitchell told his solicitor that he had no memory of any such meeting.
Mr Hogan told the tribunal the meeting, as described by Mr FitzGerald, did not take place and if it did, he couldn’t recall it. He said he had no recollection of any meeting.
The tribunal sided with Mr FitzGerald’s version of events, finding that it was “difficult in the extreme to conceive” of any reason why Mr FitzGerald would give false evidence.*
Sarah Carey works for Newstalk.
Alan Dukes was the head of IBRC when Siteserv was sold.
Some of this also happened while Alan Dukes was the head of IBRC.
March 16, 2012: It’s reported Denis O’Brien has bought Siteserv for €45.4million in cash, with the Siteserv board agreeing to the sale of its business to Millington, an Isle-of-Man-based acquisition vehicle controlled by Mr O’Brien which was established in 2011. The deal is subject to shareholder approval. It’s reported that Siteserv’s directors say they consider the deal to be ‘fair and reasonable as far as shareholders are concerned’. Sitserv says as part of the disposal plan, IBRC has agreed to accept payment of an amount which is less that the full amount owed by Siteserv to it.
March 17, 2012: It’s reported that IBRC has agreed to write off €100m of the roughly €150m debt it is owed by Siteserv, and that the bulk of the €45.4m being paid by Mr O’Brien will be used to satisfy the outstanding debt obligation, leaving the business to be acquired on a debt-free basis. It’s also reported that Siteserv estimates that it will be left with just under €5million in cash which will be distributed to shareholders, with them expected to get €3.92c for every share they own in the group. The group’s chief executive, Brian Harvey, will remain with the business, as will group finance director Niall Devereux. Mr Harvey will receive nearly €800,000 for his 20.2 million shares.
March 17, 2012: It’s reported that the sale represents a 70% haircut on the €150m in outstanding debt IBRC is owed by Siteserv. Without this agreement, the proposed disposal would not be capable of implementation and it is likely that shareholders would not have realised any return on their investment, said Siteserv. Shareholders including chief executive Brian Harvey, Chris Neate and John Neal, will receive €4.96 million, or €3.92 per share, representing a premium of 96 per cent on the previous Thursday’s closing share price, or a premium of 26.9 per cent based on the average price of Siteserv over 12 months. This is surprising as it’s generally believed with insolvent companies, equity is normally wiped.
April 1, 2012: It’s reported Australian hedge fund Anchorage Capital offered a higher price (€52m) for Siteserv than Denis O’Brien’s €45m but that ‘elements of the offer were considered less attractive then the O’Brien bid’. It’s reported that ten companies were involved in the initial bidding process with some underbidders unhappy with the sale process. It’s also reported that ‘the hedge fund would have required more extensive due diligence of the entire Siteserv group, which is made up of several companies’.
And there's much more.
Now O'Brien owns the metering company installing meters in Dublin and he owns the company running the website for Irish Water, a company that stores all its online data I suspect.
I don't know who processes the Application packs.
Big Data, according to the McKinsey Global Institute report of 2011, (Big data: The next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity), is a major growth industry worth up to $250bn p.a., the equivalent of the GDP of a small western nation, to Public Administrations, Insurers, Health Care providers etc., and is worth up to a 60% increase in profit margins for retailers etc. The whole area of data protection is hazy and ripe for abuse.
