Dublin Bus drivers have agreed to re-instate a full 27 route.

They had planned to curtail the service in parts of Tallaght tomorrow, following ongoing attacks on buses and staff.

The company's now promised to dedicate an inspector to the problem area, while extra Gardai will also be on patrol.

Sean Yeates from the National Bus and Rail Union says discussions on a long-term solution will now take place.

He said they were "happy enough" with the temporary measures being put in place to re-instate a full service.

One Driver Has Been Injured

Sean continued to say one driver has been injured when a rock hit the Dublin Bus he was driving.

"One driver is out sick after he had a rock thrown at him, through the window on the side of the bus"

"He's out sick now the last five, six weeks."

"Their safety and that of those they serve has been compromised by a very small minority"

The Union had 48 incidents reported nationwide on their website, 15 of those were related to route 27.

Those included buses damaged by rocks, physical assaults and verbal assault.
