Green Spanish Eyes Ireland's love affair with Spain
Irish operators have recently fallen in love with Spanish coach bodies.   Bus Eireann from south of the border, have introduced several batches of Irizar bodied Scanias onto express services (top left and above right) and coach operations (above left).   Not to be outdone Ulsterbus in Northern Ireland have large numbers of lower specification Irizar Scanias for Goldline express duties (right and below left) and also impressive Ayats double deckers (bottom left and below right).
