Frank O’Rourke TD has welcomed the confirmation that a school bus will now be provided for children from Johnstownbridge attending Scoil Dara in Kilcock

“A School Bus Service is currently in place linking Enfield to Kilcock. I am delighted that this service will be extended to collect pupils in Johnstownbridge. Details are been finalised with Bus Éireann for the service to be operating in the coming days”

I am delighted that I have now received confirmation from Minister Halligan that the extended bus service to Johnstownbridge will be in place in the coming days for the new school year. I first raised this matter with the Minister and his officials, when a number of parents contacted me with their concerns three years ago.”

“I have continued to press Minister Halligan over the last number of years on this issue and I must acknowledge his commitment and work to have this service provided. He was personally committed to providing this service and I appreciate his support.”

“Children attending Scoil Dara Kilcock in Kilcock from Johnstownbridge did not have access to a public school transport service. This will now be provided and it is long overdue. Great credit is due to the parents who have campaigned relentlessly to have this provided and I was delighted to have assisted.”
