The Corke Journal 1755 ‘Any gentleman who desires an express to Dublin, requiring great speed will be served by David Sullivan, Charge Porter, who undertakes to go to Dublin and back on foot in five days in summer and six in winter, provided the person agrees that he only has a few hours delay in Dublin. Compare that to present Motorway.
