A bus of a different kind for Gaelscoil an Mhuilinn 

Getting ready for school in the mornings is hectic enough when you are travelling by car but one teacher from Gaelscoil an Mhuilinn has taken it to a whole new level by introducing the ‘Bike Bus’. Muinteoir Ger Mulvihill pilots the bike bus daily, cycling the 4km route from her home to the school located on Ashe road.
