JJ Kavanagh 171-KK-1466, James Fintan Lawlor Ave Portlaoise, 06-06-2017
The new coach picks up at the town centre stop. JJ Kavanagh, and associated fleets, were long-time Setra operators, buying little else for several years. Given that Setra, owned by Mercedes-Benz, no longer sell right hand drive vehicles, a change was required. Both Neoplan and Mercedes-Benz Tourismos were tried, but the Tourisom appears to have been favoured, with several new examples arriving recently.
