Letter in Irish Times today:

Madam, – I recently discovered that it is against Dublin Bus regulations to sing on the bus. This seems authoritarian and petty. Buses are traditional venues for singing, and personally, I believe my morning commute would be enriched by hearing a fellow passenger lifting his or her voice to express the joys of life. Imagine how much social solidarity (in these difficult times) could be created by sing-alongs between strangers in transit.

Instead of forbidding singing on the bus, Dublin Bus should encourage it. It might also redirect its disapprobation towards the pot-smoking, ghetto-blaster-playing faction who often occupy the upstairs back seats on the 13 and 13A buses.

– Yours, etc,

MAOLSHEACHLANN O CEALLAIGH, Sillogue Gardens, Ballymun, Dublin 11.
