Fianna Fáil TD for Galway West Éamon Ó Cuív has received confirmation that Bus Éireann is to provide a new bus stop in Oranmore to serve the shopping centre and the residents of Coill Clocha and Clochóg.

Deputy Ó Cuív commented, “Residents in this area have been looking for an additional bus stop for some time and I am pleased that following engagement with Bus Éireann, the company has now committed to delivering on the request.  The new bus stop should be in place by early September.

“Bus Éireann has also promised an enhanced service from Oranmore to Galway to cater for the demand.  This is a rapidly growing area and more people are commuting from Oranmore into the city.  A more frequent bus service will provide a much better alternative to the car, given the severe congestion in and around the city”.
