Bus Éireann SC344, James Fintan Lawlor Ave Portlaoise, 17-04-2017
One of the passengers obviously pointed out the incorrect display, as I had intended to, as it was reset to the normal weekday destination.
After I had taken this, the driver approached me querying, in a fairly accusatory manner, why I had taken the photo. Explaining I was an enthusiast, which was suspiciously accepted , I then asked why the display was not showing Longford. It was claimed that, due to the wait in Athlone (10 minutes according the timetable, which shows it as a through journey), the destination was changed there. Quite why the southbound service on a weekday doesn't therefore show Stradbally was a subject I decided not to broach!
