The October Bank Holiday weekend saw a Vintage Vehicle Rally take place in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. This had happened previously in Dublin Port in 2014 and 2015. On Saturday the main focus was on buses. With this being the 30th Anniversary of Dublin Bus, the evolution of its three main liveries is seen here, as well as some routes from the past with a Crumlin theme. Preserved RH 7 is displaying route 55, which ran from Limekiln Avenue to the City Centre. Preserved RH 91 is displaying route 17 which runs from Blackrock to Rialto/Dolphins Barn. And finally brand new SG 313 is displaying long gone route 81 which ran from the City Centre to Bangor Circle. Dun Laoghaire Rally, 28/10/17

Currently in 2017 there are at least four buses in all over ads within the Dublin Bus fleet. In the 1980s and 1990s there were much more, but in the early 2000s Dublin Bus went through a fallow period of having none. This changed in 2012 when they started to reappear again. One difference was that the front of the bus did not receive an ad, so no longer was it really an all-over ad, but it did cover most of the bus. AV 247 was the second bus to be treated and it was done up like a loaf of Brennan's Bread. It lasted a long time like this, and although it was a Ringsend bus, it spent time in Phibsborough so the ad could gain maximum audience coverage. It is seen here on Hawkins Street with a 27 to Jobstown. 02/11/2012

A trip back to Dublin Airport in 1992. KC 28 is seen parked outside the terminal building, when there was only one terminal at Dublin Airport. It is operating route 230 which connected the airport with Swords, Malahide and Portmarnock. In was a useful orbital route, connecting some of the larger towns in County Dublin. However, one of the oddities about it was that it paralleled route 102 between Seabury and Portmarnock. The latter was one of the DART feeder routes and continued on to Sutton station. For years it had seen obvious that the two routes should be merged, creating one route from Sutton to Dublin Airport via Baldoyle, Portmarnock, Malahide and Swords. In 2008 this finally happened, but sadly the 102 won out and became the number for the new route. The 230 was dropped reducing the number of routes in the 200 range. Today in 2017 there are only 5 routes that sequence. Behind KC 28 is another KC, this one in the special livery for the express airport service. This evolved into the current Airlink route. Some of the special KCs on the airport services ended their days on the 230. 07/11/1992

I remember those buses, the no 17 fleet used them for years. Chairs were fairly high backed lol.

Early dawn breaks in Malahide for EV 16 in 2012. It is seen at the The Diamond with a working on the 32A from Dublin. At the time routes 32 and 32B operated along the coast through Baldoyle to Portmarnock. The 32A saw some of those services extended to Malahide, terminating beside the Tennis Club and near the Marina. When Network Direct hit the Howth Road four days later the A and B were abolished and all workings on the 32 were extended to Malahide. 14/11/2012
