An inquiry is to be held into the circumstances surrounding a collision involving a bus operated by a Donegal company in Co. Cavan yesterday ... Around fifty people were on the bus at the time and eight people had to receive treatment for minor injuries ... The worst injury reported was a broken hand and some of the passengers were said to be suffering from shock ...The bus which is operated by private Bus Company on behalf of Bus Eireann was built in 2006 and said to be fully seat-belted.

Good job no-one was badly hurt. I'm surprised the bus still goes that awful route via Swanlinbar, used to always make me feel carsick when I used to ride the bus up and down from college at the weekends.

I beleive that may be the same bus James was on,it had been raining heavily for a few days, and a car skidded in front of the bus and it went into the ditch according to himself.
