Bus Eireann are on strike since midnight which means that expressway route 64 which serves Bundoran (Derry-Galway) and route 30 which serves Ballyshannon (Donegal-Dublin) will not be running. Bus Eireann say however “We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused by Unions’ action and want to reiterate that School Transport services, Eurolines and cross-Border Translink operated services should not be affected by this strike action.”
Irish Rail Train services from MacDiarmada Station in Sligo are also affected:
– Limited and curtailed service with no trains serving Sligo Station.
– 08:00hrs Connolly/Sligo will operate to Longford only.
– 11:05hrs, 15:05hrs & 17:05hrs Connolly/Sligo will operate but may terminate in Boyle.
-18:05hrs Connolly/Longford will operate.
Bus Feda (Crolly to Galway) while not operating any additional services, WILL put on extra buses at normal service times to cope with expected extra demand. Their timetable is available on their website or can be downloaded here (Donegal – Galway) or here (Galway – Donegal).
To get from Dublin to Bundoran, we suggest the private bus to Sligo and then connecting with the Bus Feda service. Private buses to/from Dublin from Sligo are operated by Fureys – The Bus
but only on Fridays and Sundays.
You may also use the Citylink
service from Dublin to Galway and then take the Bus Feda service north (a bit of a round the world journey but it still gets you here!)
The new Local Link service which launched last week will run as normal and is unaffected. That timetable can be viewed below.
