Statement by Brendan Ryan TD
Party Whip, Spokesperson on Defence

Labour Party TD for Dublin Fingal, Brendan Ryan TD has welcomed a commitment he has received from the National Transport Authority that a second bus would now be added to the 101X service, due in Balrothery at 6:10am each morning.

Speaking on the matter, Deputy Ryan said:

“I am delighted that, after my engagement with the NTA, they have agreed to expand the morning 101X service. I had previously highlighted with Minister for Transport, Shane Ross that the existing service was completely inadequate to deal with the demand.

“Balrothery has no Dublin Bus or Irish Rail connections at present, and the 101 is of vital importance to the area. Under the previous service, the bus was full on arrival at Balrothery, causing significant disruption to commuters and residents.’

“I will be monitoring the new arrangement in consultation with residents to ensure that an appropriate service runs to look after the needs of people living in Balrothery.”
