Breaking: Tipperary to get two 'drink link' routes under new rural transport plan

Call for drink driving limit to be set at two pints of beer.

Tipperary is scheduled to get two so-called "drink link" routes under new plans to fight drink driving.

Transport Minister Shane Ross is due to unveil details of the dedicated rural transport links in a bid to garner support for his new drink driving laws.

This can be seen by reports that Kerry, home of the Healy Raes, fierce opponents of the new laws, is to get eight routes.

The details of the routes in Tipperary will include Cashel, Tipperary Town and Cahir, with the second route covering the rural environs around Clonmel.

There is bound to be local disappointment that the north end of the county is omitted from the proposals.
