Just seen your messages, I will send you a full run down of the 65 history in the next day or so, actually just came back from Dublin yesterday. I worked on
this route for 2 years in 1979/1980, did you use the service then?.
Anyways, I will reply back soon.
Reply from gus kilbride: Many thanks for getting back to me, Anthony.
I did indeed use the bus during that period! Incidentally, if you check the current Dublin Bus site, they have changed the timetable. There are now no buses
between 8.05 and 16.10. In fact, only eight departures are listed. However the usual mid-afternoon service is still running. I'm guessing that the new
timetable is an indication of changes to come, and that they will ultimately phase out the mid-afternoon service entirely, providing a 'commuter'
