What Dennis wrote makes good sense. Whilst Limerick is a
busy city, it has good wide roads, on the other hand Ennis
is a small market town with narrow roads. The thing to be
watchful for is cars crossing your path to get to a parking
spot on the opposite side of the street. To my knowledge
there is no by-law against parking on any side of the street
contrary to the designated direction.

Anyway, most of the road from Shannon to the city is dual
carriage way, and at 6 or 7 a.m. ( usual arrival times)
traffic won't be that busy.
