I found this picture of CIE double decker RA106 from Portlaoise on The Wanderer on Smugmug. It has something unusual on it's front blind.

I've seen them outside Intel while passing on the 66 to Maynooth. The red looks terrible. There's a couple of red ex-London? bendy buses there I think

This happened to Donnybrook's DART branded KC199 while on the Sandyford Road on 14th April 1987.

A wee drive up the mountains led me to Glencullen just in time to bump into a good friend of ours

One time when I was younger, I was lucky enough to ride a VanHool-bodied Atlantean on the full length of the 44B from Hawkins Street all the way to that remote bus loop in the mountains. The roads through Barnacullia and Ballyedmonduff do look rather dangerous from the upper deck of one of those buses. (For all the money purportedly spent on the roads in Ireland, they couldn't widen those roads for safety's sake, no?)

The problem is that there are too many house hugging either side of the road at barnacullia which makes wideing almost impossible without CPO's and some amount of cutting into the granite rock base.

There goes a story that around 2001, the regular marked in KC failed one afternoon and an new AV with a spare man was called in to cover the route. The plucky if naive driver took a wrong turn around the Blue Light and got the bus lodged at the mouth of a cul de sac blocking the main road up and down; it took an evening to free up the bus and one very embarrassed driver

I used to use the old 27A (to Cromcastle Green in Kilmore) to visit relatives along the Oscar Traynor Road in the 1980s, and I never saw that type of bus on the 17A. What part of the 1980s did it run in?

I also remember the 79 crossing the O'More Bridge back when Victoria Quay still had two-way traffic prior to the Sherwin Bridge opening. The other bus routes going that way at the time were the 24, 68 and 69.
