MONDAY MORNING CLASSIC – Bank Holiday Leopard (Ireland, 1994)

AllAboutBuses invites you to banish the Monday morning back-to-work blues with a spot of time travel . .

This week we travel back to Ireland of June 1994 – the Bank Holiday Monday to be precise – where we find an aged Leopard still in front-line service.


Co. Wexford, June 1994, and CIE bodied Leyland Leopard M147 is working on the high profile Dublin to Rosslare Harbour Expressway service.  The location is Ferns town, on the N11.

M147 is one of 213 such vehicles which entered service in the early 1970s, and at the time of this photo was more than 20 years old, but still regularly working frontline services such as this one.
