Brian Callinan Coach Hire says the company has been approached to run a daily service to NUI Maynooth taking in Bagenalstown and Carlow Town. 

In a post on Facebook, the company said: "Due to spiralling rent costs and lack of availability in Maynooth, I have been approached to run a daily service to NUI Maynooth from Bagenalstown and Carlow.

"I am considering a pre-booked daily service at €80 per week. This means you book your seat on Monday and are guaranteed that seat for the week."

The statement added: "Estimated pick-up times would be approx 7.10am Bagenalstown, 7.15am Leighlinbridge, 7.30am Carlow and then DIRECT to Maynooth. Return approx 17.15.

"Numbers are crucial and I would need at least 15 passengers on weekly tickets to trial the service. It would be reviewed at mid term and again at Christmas if viable.

"PM me to be added to the list and I'll keep you updated but please don't add you name unless you genuinely will avail of the service as people pulling out will jeopardise the run, leaving it cancelled and ruining it for other passengers."
