Sign the petition to restore public transport from Clonmel to Dublin and share it on Social Media.
Why is this important?
On the 2nd April, 2017, while Bus Eireann drivers were on strike, Bus Eireann axed the X7 Expressway service from Clonmel to Dublin Airport. At that time both Bus Eireann and JJ Kavanagh & Son were operating services from Clonmel to Dublin Airport. Since that date JJ Kavanagh & Son have operated the service, however due to Covid -19 the service has been suspended since mid March. Leaving commuters with no bus service from Clonmel to Kilkenny and Dublin. There are no talks of JJ Kavanagh resuming the service in the near future.
This outcome has highlighted the dangers and consequences of privatisation, whereby profit is put first and foremost and peoples needs become irrelevant. This is why the X7 needs to be re-instated and a proper publicly funded bus service offered to those living in and around the Clonmel area.
