By then it was too late to respond as the bus had already completed its last journey.”The email received by Cllr Crowe stated that to compensate for the cancelled service, improvements had been made to the 301 bus service which serves Raheen and the city centre.“A service will leave Westbury at 07.50hrs so passengers will have a scheduled service close to the existing 07.55 hrs time,” the email read.“Students traveling on this service to the Crescent Comprehensive School can alight at the Crescent Shopping Centre Stop which is a short walk from the school. Those attending schools off O’Connell Avenue can disembark at Mallow Street or alternatively board the 304 service that operates every 15 minutes from the City Centre to Raheen via O’Connell Avenue,” the email continued.In response Cllr Crowe alluded to a rumour circulating among “angry” parents that the service had been axed as it was not licensed by the Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII).The Fianna Fáil councillor urged Bus Éireann to clarify this “as soon as possible” so that the service could be reinstated.last_img read more

The 54-hole event will be played from Tuesday to Thursday, August 2-4.The English challengers include Dominic Clemons, 14, and Conor Gough, 13, who have already made an impact in the U16 McGregor Trophy this season.Clemons (Gog Magog) scored 68 in the last round and finished on three-over, sharing fifth place, while Gough (Stoke Park) tied ninth.The Reid Trophy is the legacy of Malcolm Reid, a great supporter of junior golf and a long-time member of Porters Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire.He always believed there should be a national competition for under 14s and in 1995, two years before his death, he launched the Reid Trophy at his club.Over the years the championship has grown to become a thoroughly international event, attracting the best boy players from across England, Europe and beyond.Past winners include England’s Eddie Pepperell, now a successful European Tour player and Scotland’s Bradley Neil who went on to become the Amateur Champion and a Walker Cup player before turning professional. England international Bradley Moore (Kedleston Park) won the trophy in 2011.The Reid Trophy was hosted at Porters Park for its first five years before moving to other courses around the country, but regularly returning ‘home’.Image copyright Leaderboard Photographylast_img read more
