Córas Iompair Éireann R698, BIK298, was the final Leyland Titan OPD2/10 with CIE H36/30R body for 1956, new in November and seen in Cork.
It was withdrawn in June 1975 and scrapped four months later. Similar stalwarts operated in a couple of cities outside of Dublin, though my ride to the youth hostel was on an unphotographed Atlantean.
The PSV Circle hasn't produced a CIE history since this bus was nine years old, so I'm very grateful to Shane Conway's somewhat hidden gem of a website for stepping in here.
