Dublin's first 24 hour bus service will start running on December 1st.
Earlier this year the National Transport Authority confirmed the number 41, that runs between Swords and the city centre, would be the first route to be trialed. The service also stops at Dublin Airport.
The number 15, between Clongriffen and Knocklyon, will also become 24/7 under the plans. Services will run every half an hour through the night on both routes.
The NTA says the changes will be useful for members of the public working irregular hours as well as pubs and restaurants in the city.

It comes after a trial 24-hour service was introduced successfully in Cork City last year. Buses are now running every hour after midnight.
Its hoped extra Dublin services will be added over time.
