As all 26 ByRoutes emanate from DUBLIN (dealt with in Special Pages covering Dublin City and the new administrative counties of Dunlaoghaire-Rathdown, South Dublin and Fingal), the region is inevitably covered by portions of each – for specifics, see pages on Co. Wicklow, Co. Kildare, Co. Meath and Co. Louth, plus Co. Carlow, Co. Kilkenny, Co. Laois, and Co. Monaghan. There are also Special Pages on Carlow Town & Environs and the Castecomer Plateau.
The Southeast, heavily marketed as the sunniest part of the island, encompasses all of Co. Wexford, most of Co. Carlow, Co. Kilkenny and Co. Waterford, and a small part of Co. Tipperary.
