The Bus Eireann 20-X20 Expressway service, which stops in Craughwell, Loughrea, Aughrim and Ballinasloe, will cease to exist from Wednesday.

Bus Éireann says following a viability review of its 18 Expressway intercity routes, it decided to cut four routes between Dublin and Belfast, Cork, Galway and Limerick.
