Tipperary looks set for Ireland’s first “Quiet Lane”

The idea is to provide an area where pedestrians, joggers and cyclists can relax and enjoy the open air without having to worry about traffic.

An area between Moyne and Templetuohy in Mid-Tipp is being suggested as an ideal location.

Local Councillor John Hogan says the 2 kilometre stretch of road at Derryville is already popular with people from across the county.
