« BackExtra bus for Castleisland students left without service

An extra bus is to be provided for a group of Castleisland students who had been left without seats this year.

Six students from the Castleisland area had to be privately driven to Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí in Tralee everyday as there was no room on the existing 53 seater bus.

The additional bus has now been sanctioned, meaning that every student will have a seat on a bus and they will also be able to return home earlier in the evening.

Deputy Brendan Griffin has welcomed the announcement.
