Getting Around

We can see from the unit on Eliza's train journey that getting about in the past was more time consuming than it is today. The journey itself was an important part of an outing.

Today's more advanced transportation means that people can reach their destinations more quickly than they could in the past. Advances in technology also mean that long-distance travel is accessible to everybody. For example, in the past, it was often only people of means who could afford to travel abroad on holidays.

People who live in Carlow town can get around in many different ways. If they want to travel to other places in the county or further afield they can use public transport or travel by taxi or car.
