The Rural Bus by Grey Heron Media published on 2013-06-14T16:13:29Z In rural communities, access to services like shops and banks is increasingly dependent on having a car. But what happens when driving is not an option and you're living in the countryside. The Rural Transport Programme provides community based public transport in rural Ireland responding to local needs. Diarmuid McIntyre climbed aboard the Rural Bus into Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. Originally broadcast on RTE Radio One's Countrywide, June 2012.
