17th March of St. Patrick's Day and in the American date format that is 03 17 so what better way to celebrate the day than with a shot of AV 317. Another aspect of St. Patrick's Day is that it brings a lot of diversions for bus routes with the city centre shut down for the parade. Gardiner Street becomes the main cross city route for buses that usually use O'Connell Street. AV 317 is seen operating one such route, the 19A. This operated from Jamestown Road in Finglas to Limekiln Avenue in Greenhills but at this point it did not have much life left to it. Network Direct replaced the 19A with the 9 in August 2011.
AV 317 is seen in Mountjoy Square. 17/03/2011
