A local senator has welcomed an additional bus route by Bus Éireann for the Monaghan area to Dublin.

Only last week, Senator Gallagher said he was approached by two ladies at the Monaghan bus depot.

When the bus arrived, six seats were available, however they were told that the six seats had been pre-booked online, with four customers getting on in Castleblayney and a further two in Carrickmacrosss.

Senator Gallagher outlined the frustration felt by both women who had important hospital appointments to attend in Dublin.
