Going South from the cross, we travel the Balgaddy on towards Whitestown to the Naul road. Leaving the village and travelling East we come to the Cross roads where we meet the old Coach Road running from Dublin to Drogheda.

Travelling North from the cross roads we reach Gormanston about one mile away. Before reaching the Bridgefoot, an ancient inn of the Coach days, we pass by potato Hill Lane, a narrow road connecting this coach road with the main road running from Balbriggan to Drogheda.
