MAJOR CHANGES TO DUBLIN BUS TIMETABLE

From Sunday, 18th November, Dublin Bus are making major changes to Howth bus timetables.  The most significant change is the introduction of a new 31A service which will run from the city centre at Lr Abbey St to Howth Summit via Howth Dart station and continue down Carrickbrack Road to Strand Road Sutton to a new terminus at Shielmartin Road.  The return service to the city centre will be via the Summit to Howth Village and onwards via Raheny.  As a consequence, the 31 bus service will be less frequent than at present, while the 31B will also be affected.  There will now be no 31B services on Saturdays and Sundays, in addition to no weekday 31B service between the hours of 8.10am and 5.20pm. Commuters are advised that the last bus from the city centre is now 11.15pm.  For full details see the Dublin Bus website http://www.dublinbus.ie/

 

SAINT VINCENT De PAUL SOCIETY

The local Conference of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society will hold their monthly collection to-day – after all the Masses.
