Road network

The R741 road is a regional road in County Wexford, Ireland. From its junction with the R772 in Gorey it takes a southerly route to its junction with the R730 in the centre of Wexford Town, where it terminates.

The road is of good quality, well surfaced and lined, throughout. It is used as an alternative route to the N11 national primary road for traffic between Gorey and Wexford Town.

In the vicinity of the R744 at Castle Ellis, the road is known locally as "the new line". It is worth noting that the new line was built in the 1820s!

The traditional iconic view of Wexford Town is the bridge over the Slaney sweeping across in the foreground with the town behind it (for an example see ). The bridge is actually the final stage of the R741 southwards.
