This isn't a single service area as we would recognise it, but a series of facilities located on the original Dublin to Belfast road as it crosses the border at Killeen. Traffic is able to leave the new A1 north of the border, take the old road past the services, and then re-join the road to the south (or vice-versa).

Trivia and History[edit]

Morgan fuels.
One of the many petrol stations.

The facilities available are anything to take advantage of the different currencies and regulations, but this includes a number of forecourts which warrant the exit being signed with "Dublin Road services".

These facilities saw a drop in trade after the cross-border dual carriageway opened in 2006, and consequently many of them look run down.

Curiously, due to the position of the border, when travelling northbound traffic briefly spends a few hundred yards in Northern Ireland before re-entering the Republic and then entering Northern Ireland again. For many years this area was politically contentious, and there are still questions about how it will work post-Brexit.
