Weekly Lidl shopping bus for Corrib Village

NUIG's Student's Union have announced that they are running a free bus from Corrib Village to the Lidl supermarket on the Headford Road on Monday evenings, starting Monday 26 February 2018.

This is similar to the supermarket service which operates in some other Irish cities.

It is only open to students (not yet clear if it's only Corrib Village residents, or if other NUIG students can use it), because it not a licensed public bus service.

The service:
Leaves from Corrib Village at 6pm
Leaves from Lidl at 7.30pm

Presumably it will operate during term-time only.
