It is another trip back to 1997 this week, but this time to Dun Laoghaire. ME 43 is seen at the 59 terminus beside the railway station on Crofton Road. The route connected Dun Laoghaire and Killiney via Dalkey, providing local connections. Although the bus is in City Imp colours the route was not part of the brand - these smaller buses were just more suited to the route. In the early 2000s the route was extended to Mackintosh Park but this was undone in November 2016 when the route was cut back to Killiney once more.
It should be noted that the bus has an interesting destination blind with both ends of the route shown, saving the driver the effort of having to change it. It does mean there is no Irish on it though. Dun Laoghaire, 30/11/1997
