A miscommunication has been blamed for the no-show bus service for fans travelling to Elton’s Cork concert on Friday night.
It had been reported that an enhanced bus service would be available from Lapp’s Quay to Monahan Road near Pairc Ui Chaomih. However, this did not happen. So queues of people were forced to make alternative arrangements.
Bus Eireann confirmed that it was not involved in any arrangement to facilitate extra vehicles. It was operating its regular services to Ballintemple and Blackrock, which were utilised by concertgoers.
Aiken Promotions told the Echo that any information on enhanced bus services had been issued in good faith and apologised for the inconvenience.
