Travelling on the M7? Watch out for those goats
No, seriously.

AA ROADWATCH HAS advised motorists travelling northbound on the M7 this morning to take care.

The reason? Two goats who are shooting the breeze on the hard shoulder of the motorway northbound at junction 16 around Portlaoise East.

According to the traffic and travel information service, the two animals are frequent visitors to that part of the M7 but they “don’t tend to disrupt”.

Still, you can’t be too careful with goats around so watch out if travelling that way this morning.
