Wicklow residents have been contacting their local representatives to call for a new shuttle bus that would make it easier for them to visit their loved ones in Wicklow Hospice.
Graham Richmond, teacher at East Glendalough and local representative for Fine Gael, had recieved many calls and e-mails from Wicklow residents calling for a bus shuttle service that would make it easier for them to visit their relatives and loved ones at Wicklow Hospice.
While there had already been plans long ago to provide such a shuttle from Wicklow Town and Ashford to the hospice, Mr. Richmond wrote a letter to Minister for Travel Eamon Ryan to revisit this plan and to consider it a pressing issue from the Wicklow community.
Wicklow Hospice is based in Maghermore and not accessible via public transport.
Mr. Richmond is hoping to have a new shuttle bus established that will more seamlessly connect the Hospice with the larger community.
