The biggest disadvantage of the smaller roads in remote areas is that they are often not signposted, so you should have a good map and compass.
Road engineering is rather primitive -- instead of having switchbacks on a steep slope, roads often climb by the most direct route.

 NORTHERN IRELAND - Seven roads to salvation
Northern Ireland may be part of the UK but it is a place apart: governed in a different way (by a British Secretary of State); policed differently (its police have always carried guns); and with different social legislation (abortion is unavailable, for example).
Repartition would secure Protestant domination of a new Northern Ireland but that would be a bleak prospect for the Catholics and nationalists who would still remain – not least in the staunchly republican areas of West Belfast.
An independent Northern Ireland shorn of the British subsidy would be unable to survive economically in anything like the style to which it has become accustomed.

Of course it is impossible to roll uphill and the truth is that the upward slope of the road is an optical illusion, albeit a totally convincing one, and you are rolling down a hill.
You will be going uphill at this point - go to the top of the hill, then down the other side until you are see a hut by the side of the road.
One man's experience of the Dundalk road is well worth reading for a first hand account of how weird the feeling of rolling uphill can be.

Every road is built because sufficiently large numbers of people need or will need to make that journey.
Roads in Ireland go back for centuries and, since only a few roads disappear, our patchwork road network is a living history of the movements of people over the centuries.
Although motorways are my main interest, these are only the most recent in many phases of this process which include the first tracks, the turnpikes of the 19th century, railways, trunk roads, motorways and modern systems such as eWays and cycle lanes.
