As agreed, it was my turn to experience driving Irish roads. Driving on the left was easier than trying to figure out the sense of where the car was. I drive a 4x4 at home, and this car was low and long (at least to me it seemed so). I used my right mirror a lot to see where the car was in relation to the center line.
