It’s a dream come true for me as a mature student.  I am now able to attend my college course at ATU, Castlbar because of the extra Local Link services on the 978 this year.  I am so thrilled and really looking forward to getting my degree!

I would like to say that in the years I have been dealing with Local Link in Mayo, I have found the service to be excellent. Both drivers and administrators are always very helpful, understanding and focused on a customer friendly service. Local link is an invaluable resource to rural Ireland. Thank you.

The service is fantastic! Michael the driver is an absolute angel. I have Cataracts and he helps me on and off the bus, he even came into the shop with me recently as I can’t see the prices of things.  Nothing is too much trouble for him. I don’t know what I would do without the Local Link service.
