It is 1992 and RH 120 is seen heading north on O'Connell Street with cross-city route 10 from UCD Belfield to Phoenix Park. Until its withdrawal in 2010, this was one of the more famous bus routes in Dublin with most people's experiences of it either being to take them to college in UCD or the Zoo in the Phoenix Park. Under Network Direct, the northern half of the route was taken over by the 46A, and the southern half by the 39A.
The bus is in an all-over ad for the "Travel Ten" ticket. This was an initiative by Dublin Bus where one prepaid ticket offered ten journeys. This ticket later morphed into the "2 Eazy" ticket, which then evolved into the current smartcard "Leap".
RH 120 was delivered new to Dublin Bus in 1991. It was withdrawn in the early-2000s and went to operate with Veolia in the United Kingdom. 14/03/1992

I was in it in 1994 and I remember it being Supermacs's back then. The private Galway to Dublin buses used to stop around there so it was a no brainer to locate around there.

What's the burger place beside KFC, is it burgerland? I think that was there before burger King moved in further up where it is now?

It is 1995 and the 20B is making its presence known on Marlborough Street. D 689 is seen displaying an outbound working to Ardlea Road, while behind it is a KD on an inbound working to the City Centre. This route served the northern suburbs of Fairview, Donnycarney and Beaumont. The 20B was once just one route that served these areas, along with the 20 and 20A. However over the years these routes fell by the wayside and the 20B outlived them all until 2011 when it was merged with the 14. This created a new cross-city route from Beaumont to Dundrum.
D 689 had a long career in Dublin. It was delivered new to CIE in 1975 and was withdrawn by Dublin Bus in the summer of 1996.
Beside the bus is the offices of Church and General Insurance. This was rebranded in 1999 as Allianz. Finally, the location where the bus is parked became the Marlborough tram stop on the Luas Green Line in 2017. 20/03/1995
