Couldn't rightly say. They could be 'up the street' or 'down the street' or 'out on a shhhkite'. And why did people say 'out the Newport road', 'out the Westport road', 'out the Breaffy road', 'out in Belcarra', 'out the golf links road' BUT 'down the Turlough road'. Why did we 'go back to Westport', 'over to Claremorris' 'down to Ballina' and 'up to Galway'. Why did we go 'up the bogs, 'back the railway', 'down the lake', 'back to the sea' and 'down to the mast for a walk'. We also went 'up to Dublin' and 'up to Belfast', but 'down the country', 'down to Cork, 'down to Limerick' but 'up to Galway'.
