I have trip to Cabra today to visit Cabra library for art show and Deaf Village Ireland. I have to take the people to Cabra because they don’t know the way there. Nothing of my classmates joins us on Cabra trip today.
We left the EVE GHIS building at about after 10am because one student arrived late and we walked from Cork Street to South Circular Road and then arrived at the bus stop number 1384. We boarded the bus at about 10:30am and the bus was delayed due to too many cars and taxis on the bus route. I formed the EVE GHIS people in the upper deck and one teacher-style student prefer sit in the lower deck on the bus. The bus arrived 10 minutes late at bus stop number 820 on Carnlough Road and we exited the bus. I guided the EVE GHIS tutors and students along Cabra Road to Navan Road as I kept them together and advise them to look left and right before cross the roads and then arrived at Cabra library at 11:20am and visited the art exhibition.
We arrived at the art exhibition in Cabra library and looked at the painting, drawings, photographs and models.
The communication tutor promised me to meet the people at the door before head to the Deaf Village Ireland at 11:45am and she took 15 minutes late after the art exhibition.
I repeated advise the people to use the road codes before cross the roads without using the traffic lights due to too much delays – vehicle traffic lights = 1 minute and pedestrian traffic lights = 10 minutes. I have to keep them on time.
Due to construction work at the Deaf Village Ireland, I guided the EVE GHIS people along the path to the Deaf Village Ireland. We arrived at the Deaf Village Ireland and I guided them around the offices, church, toilet, the Hub and theatre area in the DVI and some of the rooms are access and restrictions. We had no time to visit the Chapel Wing building due to strict time. I told the EVE GHIS people to visit the Chapel Wing building another day with another students and tutors. I showed the people the stone benches were the biggest staircase barriers what the Post Primary school was there. I showed them that there are panels on the Chapel Wing building that I remembered that the Post Primary school link to the Chapel Wing building before the demolishment started in 2011. The art tutor is interesting in the stone bench.
The students and tutors had meals in the DVI and I counted the people on the way out. One student nearly got lost in the DVI and I sent some students and tutors to retrieve him before I formed them together.
Two students asked my permission to visit the gym due to limited three people and I granted them to visit the gym and I can’t leave the DVI without them. I told the EVE GHIS people about the gate lead to Ratoath Road what my play school stood there when I was 5 years old in 1983 and pointed my finger at the deaf mute school what I transferred there when I was 6 years old in 1984.
The deaf people thought that I was the member of the DVI as I come to the DVI for some events what I guided the people a tour around the DVI due to heavily limit. I spoke with some of the deaf people about fully sign language skills before enter the DVI. Some of my old schoolmates told me that some deaf and hard of hearing people, same as my old childhood friend(past Navan Road and now Kildalkey)’s husband, were lack of sign language skills due to their teacher’s faults to cease using sign language. I had fully sign language skills because I was in the deaf mute school for 8 years before I transferred to the Post Primary school in 1992. I advise them that the sign language classes are available in Trinity College Dublin, Deaf Village Ireland and Cabra library.
I remembered the route 39 serve Cabra is most rich route because it always get new buses – CIE Leyland Atlantean PDR/1 DFs in 1967, Vanhool Atlantean AN68 DFs in 1975, Bombardier KDs in 1980, Leyland Olympian RHs in 1990, Plaxton DAF Ps in 1993, followed and merged by Alexander DAF ADs in 1994, Olympian RAs in 1994, Volvo Alexander Olympian RVs in 1997 and ALX400 AVs in 2000. The 39 was once served by Enviro500 VTs in 2007 but interrupted by the AV/DT/AXs, Enviro400 EVs and Wright Eclipse Gemini no1 VGs and no2 GTs at the present time. I remembered the route 22 serve Cabra is the poor route because it always get 10 – 15 years old buses – DFs in 1983 and KDs in 1993. Now the route 22 is gone due to lack of new buses and replaced by the route 122 at the present time. The Wright Eclipse Gemini no3 SGs are due for delivery to Dublin Bus this year and the route 39 is not allowed to get new SGs because it has existed fully refurbished AV/DT/AX, EV, VG and GT buses at the present time.
On our way back to the bus stop number 833 on Carnlough Road, I formed the EVE GHIS people before board the bus on the way back to the bus stop number 1363 on South Circular Road. The art tutor got off the bus at city centre. I repeated advice the people to use the road codes before cross the roads on the way back to the EVE GHIS building.
