€30,000 clean up bill for Bus Eireann

Bus Éireann have said that the total cost of the damage some city busses sustained on Tuesday night will be in the region of €30,000.

Speaking to the Limerick Leader, Regional manager of Bus Éireann, Miriam Flynn, said,

"We decided at 7 O’clock to withdraw our services because at that stage we had five or six buses off the road. The safety of our passengers and staff was our main concern," said Miss Flynn. Bus services returned to normal this Wednesday morning as engineers and management at Bus Éireann were left counting the costs of another Halloween. Gardai have confirmed that a number of privately operated buses were also targeted on Tuesday night. In one incident a bus carrying students to a disco was targeted on Saint Nessan's Road in Dooradoyle.”
