BUS JOURNEY: Corkman Anthony Byrne in The Test

AFTER 30 years working in the construction business, builder, and part-time Cork area park warden, Anthony Byrne, feels it’s time for a career change.

He wants to be a bus driver — and it is not just so his grandkids can sing ‘the wheels on the bus’ to him — which they do, constantly!

Anthony takes centre stage in the final episode of The Test on RTÉ1 on Monday at 7.30pm.

Taking him on his driving test journey is former bus driver, now bus instructor Billy Corkery.

Also in the episode, we meet Ireland’s oldest approved driving instructor, 84-year-old Bill Shyne, who has been coaching the learner drivers of Limerick for more years than he cares to remember.

Plus, Maynooth music student and part-time folk singer Danny Arnold is on a mission to take on the global easy listening music business. His major problem right now, however, is transport.

A full licence will not only give him transport independence but also a chance to expand his creative reach possibly coast to coast.
