Another Volvo B11R for Ballincollig

Ballingcollig Coaches has taken another B11R Euro 6 with Jonckheere JHV body following a good experience on fuel saving with an earlier B11R. The Cork-based company had been pleased with the performance of the first coach and opted for the same model when looking to expand its fleet.

“We needed a new 53-seater for our fleet, to work on our increasingly busy tour programme in Ireland and the UK,” explains Ballincollig Coaches owner Donal O’Callaghan. “We operate around 20 coaches, of which more than half are Volvo, and have experienced great success from the B11R we purchased last year following recommendations at Euro Bus Expo.

“The savings we have made with the highly fuel-efficient Euro 6 engine, as well as our previous experience of the vehicle quality, operational costs, and reliable support network meant we had no hesitation in selecting a Volvo once again.”

Ballincollig gets aftersales service from local Volvo dealership McCarthy Commercials in Watergrasshill, Co. Cork.

Ballingcollig Coaches is a family-owned business established in 1988 operating tailored short breaks and extended tours.
