DAVID JENKINS is back on Bus Éireann for this second account of his travels on the state-owned company’s extensive Expressway network across Ireland*. He does reach Tipperary but is back in Dublin first and returns to the capital on a final leg from Clonmel.
On the coach roads of Ireland
* Part One in Buses last month
My coach – the first 51 of the day from Galway – is due in at 09.20, but it is nearer 09.30 when it does arrive in Limerick bus station. There are perhaps a dozen passengers alighting, and when the last gets off, so does the driver who disappears into the station.
