Hi All,

Hope you are enjoying your first week at college so far.

Its time to get your Leap Card  – the hassle free way to pay for public transport around Dublin. It is a reusable plastic smart card that can be used instead of paper tickets to pay-as-you-go for transport in Dublin. It looks like this:


It saves you money, its flexible and convenient. You can register your Leap Card online, so if it’s lost or stolen, no one else can use it. Once you register, you can also see your card history and buy

There are application forms for a student leap card in the student union office – please contact me if you need one –
