      That bit is Malahide, you can tell by the higher spec. cars. Lovely pic, that coast road journey was a real bone rattler.

        Funny when I looked again the girls nearest the photo look like they are on the way to the lawn tennis club up the road

    It kinda looks like the bus manufacturer just extruded a huge long bus and chopped it up into littler busses.

    the summer of 1984 stands out in my mind as just being beautiful, sun sun sun all the way. Nice photo.

        wiseguy :). Looking back I’m fairly certain the whole summer was beautiful. That’s more sunshine than my kids have seen in their lives !

    Great picture. Amazingly, that very bus still survives under the care of myself and another couple of nerds! Doesn’t look like that now but once the lotto pays out she will be back on the road and we will take her for a photocall in Malahide :). Will post a photo of her as she looks today!

    I was in Sarajevo last summer, they use refurbished 1970’s Austrian street trams and old Finnish trains.

    Is this what it’s like for the Navan public transport system?
