Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Public Transport (10 Jul 2024)

James Lawless: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Leas-Cheann Comhairle agus leis an Teachta. I thank Deputy Stanton for his kind comments.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Public Transport (10 Jul 2024)

James Lawless: I thank the Deputy for the information he has provided in response to me. The problems in Castlemartyr appear to be causing an issue with the 31X proposal, if I understand correctly. The proposed new bus route between Midleton and Youghal will travel through Castlemartyr. Is that the issue?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Public Transport (10 Jul 2024)

It is not so much that it is being said that it is not possible but that it is not desirable, which is naturally slightly different. I hear what the Deputy...

Section 4 of...
