Staff from GoBus.ie took part in Croi’s World Heart Day ’15 Minute’ Lunchtime Walk on September 29th.

Participants gathered at Browne Doorway (at the top of Eyre Square) for a mile long walk through William Street; Shop Street; High Street; Quay Street over Wolfetone Bridge and back up Dominick Street; Bridge Street; Mainguard Street; Shop Street and finishing in Eyre Square.

The initiative aimed to encourage all workers in offices and businesses in Galway city centre to take 15 minutes out of their lunchtime and make time for a quick stroll.

Explaining the advantage of just a little daily exercise, Croi’s Exercise Specialist Denise Dunne says “we sit on average 8 hours a day and long hours of sitting increases our risk of heart disease by almost 50%. Standing and walking in the average working day helps burn calories which is good for weight control but taking as little as fifteen minutes a day during lunchtime will help lower blood pressure; increase good cholesterol, increase productivity and reduce stress levels”

Have you pre-booked your bus to Croke Park this bank holiday weekend?
It's another bumper weekend for the West with Galway GAA facing off against the Tipperary footballers at 4pm Sunday and Mayo GAA throwing in against Westmeath at 6pm on Saturday.
With a journey time of 2 1/2 hours on our non stop service, Galway and Dublin have never been closer.
Due to essential works on O'Connell Bridge this weekend, we will be dropping of on Arran Quay, which is about a 15 minute walk from our usual stop at Eden Quay. We will be picking up from our stop at Burgh Quay as usual.
Remember to book your ticket online on www.gobus.ie to avail of our best value fares and guarantee your seat.

To facilitate works on O’Connell Bridge - Dublin’s north and south quays will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic at O’Connell Bridge this bank holiday weekend from 8pm on Friday July 29th until 6am on Tuesday August 2nd.

As a result our drop off point in Dublin City Centre will be Arran Quay, which is about 15 minutes’ walk from our stop at Eden Quay.

We anticipate heavy traffic in the City Centre over the Bank Holiday weekend and would advise passengers to leave additional time for their journey.

Amazing service!! You couldn't ask for anything better, a Galway based family business that's helping the public so much. The trip to Dublin is so luxurious on any GoBus coach, great seats,great staff and sometimes you get water given to you. Absolutely love this service and have used it at least 60-70 times in my life as I used to live and work in Galway but relocated to Dublin. Keep up the great work guys. Fair play daoibh, job ar dóigh! #Galway2020
