Healy Eames demands regular daily bus service for Carnmore

Mon, Feb 08, 2016

Bus services from Galway city to Carnmore, Maree, and Annaghdown are "almost non-existent" and leaving people in these areas "cut-off and isolated", according to a Galway senator.

Independent Galway West Senator Fidelma Healy-Eames is calling for an extension of the bus service connecting Carnmore to Galway city, describing the area as "particularly poorly serviced", as it only runs only once a day at 7.40am.

"Carnmore is only a few miles from the city and yet there isn't even a regular multi-trip service to and from Carnmore Cross," she said. "People feel cut-off and isolated'. I hear the same story in Annaghdown and Maree."
