WATCH: The latest entry in the search to find Offaly's worst road

This time we headed for the south of the county in our search for the county's worst roads

We at the Offaly Express are continuing our driving tour of the county to find Offaly's worst road. We asked our readers to point us in the direction of the worst surfaces in the county, and you have responded with numerous suggestions. 

Over the weekend we headed to the south of the county to drive from Rath to Birr. There were plenty of potholes to dodge and one serious set of dips around the three minute mark. The road improved dramatically one you passed the Bord na Mona facility on the way into Birr.
