She's most famous for saying "Go On, Go On, Go On" but now Mrs. Doyle is encouraging motorists to stop for tea as part of a Mayo Road safety campaign.

In an attempt to combat driver fatigue Mayp Council have erected cardboard cut-outs of Pauline McLynn’s character to remind road users to take a break.

The campaign follows on from the Road Safety Authority (RSA) launching their new ad campaign "Stop, Sip, Sleep" this week with research by the RSA showing that 1 in 5 collisions can be due to driver fatigue.

And if "Our Lord Himself on the cross paused for a nice cup of tea," as Mrs. Doyle claims, then surely we can pause for a few minutes as well.

Here's a nice picture from our friends at Craggy Island Quotes.
