There's a small sign in Flannelly's window that says simply: Bus Stop moved to Garvey Way (or it could be Garvey Avenue/Road/Boulevard).
Can anyone tell me where Garvey Way is? What chance has someone not familiar with the town? Why not put up a little map to indicate that Garvey Way is near the Protestant Graveyard down the side of the TF opposite McGreavy's now defunct toy store which didn't open this Christmas (shut down by the Grinch it's rumoured).
And it should also include a warning that if you are going to wait for a bus there you better have an umbrella handy because they forgot to provide a simple bus shelter for this exposed section fo "Garvey Way". (Perhaps a bandstand style bus shelter would be appropriate in honour of the eponymous Garvey?)
I met a little old lady on Spencer Street yesterday hauling a bag behind her from the direction of the train station -"Where's the new bus station?" she asked me. I nearly replied "Garvey Way" like the sign on Flannellys window but decided to give her proper directions instead.
