How bad was it Vico??

I can name a few bad routes here in Dublin at this day and age - eg the 220 between Ballymun and Blanch SC now.

It's 1988 and KD 74 is seen in the north County Dublin town of Skerries. It is operating route 33 to Babriggan, the most northerly place on the Dublin Bus network, and where Dublin Bus remeets Bus Eireann. The 33 can trace its roots back to the Great Northern Railway (Ireland) and the bus services it operated in conjunction with its railway operations. When the company was absorbed into CIE (and the UTA in Northern Ireland) in 1958 the bus routes became part of the Dublin city network. The route still operates today, and is supplemented by the 33A which operates between Swords and Skerries/Balbriggan. This latter route is due to be operated by Go-Ahead while the 33 stays with Dublin Bus. In the past Skerries used to have short workings between its railway station and the main street, which was not a very long journey.
KD 74 entered service around 1981/82 and has gained a Dublin Millennium logo in the rear downstairs window, to mark a thousand years of Dublin city in 1988. It is in the Dublin Bus livery which was about a year old at this point, although the bus stop is still CIE. 21/02/1988
