Remember the buses meeting tonight

A reminder again that tonight is the 'Save our Buses' meeting in Athy Community School where local groups concerned about cuts in private and state bus services are coming together to show their frustrations, writes Brian Byrne.

The CEO of the National Transport Authority will be in attendance, as will local and Dail public representatives.

The event has been organised by groups from Castledermot, Carlow and Kilkenny to provide a wide-range show of strength on the issue, which has affected commuters, students, the elderly and other users of buses on many rural roads, including between Carlow and Naas.

The meeting begins at 8pm.
