GREAT TURF ROAD IN KILDARE

Leinster Leader 1 August 1942
“Great turf road in Kildare”
What is locally called the “Great Turf Road,” between the Convent, Rathangan, and Skiaow Bridge, Allen, is rapidly approaching completion. It will form the chief and shortest route from Portarlington and Rathangan areas to Dublin, on which turf supplies will be conveyed. At a cost stated to amount to £60,000, one hundred workers have been engaged in its construction. It was hitherto regarded as one of the worst roads in the County Kildare.
