Throwback Thursday (161)

It is 1984 and KC 20 is seen in Rialto with a 17. This route is one of the orbital routes in Dublin city, in that it connects the suburbs together rather than with the city centre. In 1984 the 17 connected Rialto with Dolphin's Barn, Crumlin, Dundrum and Blackrock. The route still does this today in 2019. In 1984 when this photograph was taken, the route was operated by CIE. Dublin Bus took over upon its formation in 1987 and then in 2019 Go-Ahead Ireland assumed responsibility for it and other orbital routes in Dublin.

KC 20 was delivered new to Donnybrook in 1981 and ended its career at Phibsborough Garage in the 1990s.
