Some aspects of a more 'joined-up' Ireland, produced by continuing roads improvements since 2000, are briefly reviewed. New long-distance high-performance routes, in conjunction with road improvements around Dublin city, have facilitated direct access to Dublin airport and have given the airport an enhanced terrestrial nodality. Coach services to the airport now run 24/7, providing access to early morning flights. These developments, and the increasing dominance of Dublin airport, are discussed as evidence of how the geography of Ireland responds to the time-space opportunities afforded by the new roads system
