Irish Citylink is an Irish based subsidiary of Singaporean company ComfortDelGro, which provides bus services between some of Ireland's major cities and towns.

History[edit]

In 2010, CityLink contracted the running of its bus services to Callinan Coaches while remaining in control of sales and marketing of its routes.[1]

Services[edit]

As of May 2017, Citylink operates on six routes:[2]

  • Galway – Dublin City non-stop express
  • Galway – Dublin Airport non-stop express (branded as eireagle)[3]
  • Galway – Limerick – Cork – Cork Airport express (Route 251)
  • Galway – Clifden (Route 923)
  • Galway – Ballinasloe – Athlone – Dublin commuter (Route 763)
  • Limerick – Dublin Airport eireagle[3] (Route 712X)

Legal prosecution[edit]

In April 2010, CityLink were prosecuted for operating an unlicensed bus service between Dublin and Galway when, in addition to their licensed stopping bus service, they introduced a non-stop service between the two cities. While the District Court judge found that the case against the company had been proven to the required degree, she decided to apply the Probation Act.[4]
