58 & 59 have gone to Galway.

60-75 are allocated to Capwell with 4 in convoy spotted on the M8 last weekend as you correctly say.

Limerick have received VWD87.

In total they are to receive 7 VWD’s which is expected to cascade VWL164,165,174-177.

VWL173 has already gone to Dundalk.

Incidentally 173-177 were new to Capwell in 2008 before transferring to Limerick in 2009.

VWL164,165 spent 6 months in Cork in 2016.

No idea what Capwell will get to replace it.
Does it actually do anything between occasional victory parades for (mostly) GAA teams?

VWD 65 & 73 have now been delivered to Capwell.

3 VWD's were sitting in Volvo on the Naas road last week.

I suspect these may be VWD90-92 and destined for Limerick.

The VWD 400’s have now entered service in Galway. As a result Capwell in Cork have received VWD26 to 30 from them. VWL154 and VWL156 are now in Waterford.

Former Athlone/Cork/Galway based VWL 304 & 325 are now allocated to Limerick, reports that VWL308 will follow.
Former Galway based VWD26 & 27 are now in Waterford via Cork
VWL150 is now in Cork via Waterford
Ex Galway based VWD27 & 28 are expected to go to Broadstone via Cork
Ex Limerick based VWD90 is out of service long term in Cork following an accident in recent times, according to a driver it may be a write off due to cutting equipment being used.

I see a few of the Streetlite buses in service in Navan on the local service. Also seen one when I was driving through Ardee. There was an ex Cork single decker in Navan a couple of weeks ago. I noticed it had route advertising for Kent Station.

There's a few ex Cork single deckers up that way, VWL305 of Sligo was over in Louth Commericals for work i read somewhere. VWL301/302 are based in Dundalk/Drogheda. VWL304 went from Athlone to Limerick recently and VWL308 is floating around up there too. All of those are 2012 reg. I've never experienced those streetlites. Opinions vary on them.

VWL308 is now allocated to Galway. My god the Bus Eireann fleet numbers really are scattered all over the country.

There was a double decker (one like on Navan-Dublin) operating 40 between Cork/Waterford today.

Once off or have Cork been given some double deckers for longer non city routes?
