A Dublin City councillor has urged local parents 'to take action' after anti-social behaviour forced Dublin Bus to cancel services in Cherry Orchard during the week. 

Find out where your children are, what they are doing and who they are with,” Sinn Féin City Councillor for Ballyfermot, Cllr Daithí Doolan, said.

“This is for their safety and the benefit of all the residents here in Cherry Orchard.”

Cllr Doolan was responding to what he called 'attacks on the 79 and 79a buses in Cherry Orchard, which is wrong'.

“This vandalism is unacceptable,” he said. “The actions of a few are holding the whole community to ransom.

“Those who suffer the most are the old and the vulnerable. Those involved in the attacks should stop and think. They are hurting their own neighbours and families.

“It is also putting the health and safety of the drivers at risk. They are being left with no other alternative but to stop this essential service to a whole community.

A spokesperson for Dublin Bus said: “We can confirm that due to anti-social behaviour yesterday evening, Wednesday, February 3, buses did not serve Clifden Road, Cherry Orchard Avenue or Spidall Park from 9pm for the remainder of the evening.

“Services on Route 79 operated to Cherry Orchard Hospital and services on Route 79a operated via Cloverhill to Park West.”
