Jack Lynch Tunnel

The Jack Lynch Tunnel is an immersed tube tunnel that runs under the River Lee and allows easy access to south and west Cork if you are travelling from Dublin. North of the tunnel, the ring-road joins the M8 motorway to Dublin (north) and N8 road to the city centre (west), with the N25 commencing east to Waterford. 

The tunnel is named after former Taoiseach, Jack Lynch, a native of Cork.
