Now here’s a little gem. The Irish long distance bus company Bus Éireann is offering special fares to users of the messaging website Twitter. But we are happy to divulge the details here so that readers of hidden europe notes can benefit from this splendid offer. For the princely sum of 2 EUR devotees of Twitter (and others who merely affect to be dedicated Twitterers) can travel from Donegal to Dublin, Waterford to Cork or Galway to Shannon. More details on http://webhe.eu/bus. The offer lasts to the end of this month. And useful, too, in a country that is sadly lacking in cross-country train services – indeed Donegal has no trains at all.
