Number of Galway children without a school bus place higher than expected

A Roscommon/Galway TD says the number of children without a school bus place in County Galway is much higher than estimated

322 children are currently without a school bus place, with 32 of these children having additional needs.

The figures were obtained directly from the Minister for Education.

Sinn Fein TD Claire Kerrane says these children qualify for the scheme, but have missed out due to internal issues in Bus Eireann.

She also says many parents are unable to take their child to school without the bus service
