The ICA Welcomes Extension of Evening and Night-time Transport Services in Rural Ireland

08-May-2018

The Irish Countrywomen’s Association (ICA) welcomes Minister Shane Ross’s announcement of the extension of evening and night-time transport services in rural Ireland, with 19 counties set to benefit from this trial in the coming six months.

The ICA is confident that this initiative will prove that these additional transport services are desperately needed in rural Ireland and will go some way to combatting rural isolation and loneliness.

The ICA calls on the Minister to ensure that he will secure the additional funding required to expand the scheme in next October’s budget which must include day time services also.
