It was the AA Roadwatch announcement that caught my attention: "It's busy on the Kylemore Road, especially southbound from before the canal bridge to the Naas Road junction."

Had there been a pile-up? After all, one of the few advantages of the lockdown is that with less traffic there have been fewer accidents.

But nope, thankfully, it wasn't an accident and nobody was hurt. Instead, the reason for the delays was rather more prosaic - McDonald's reopened this week and people were desperate to get their first Big Mac in months.
