 “Bus Éireann announced the delivery of these new easily accessible coaches to Kerry”, said Assistant Services Manager, Kerry for Bus Éireann, Frances McCarthy. “Bus Éireann is an integral part of Kerry and its community, making more than 411 daily trips across the county, carrying more than 900,000 passengers a year in Kerry prior to the pandemic.
