Tom Mulholland is the Engineering Manager at Conyngham Road Depot. anager Tom Mulholland. Tom is further assisted by Liam O'Neill, the duty foreman who replaced Tom Wiseman, who went to Clontarf Depot (Still following this?). Okay, so there is the line up of who runs the Engineering/Maintenance Department at Conyngham Road Depot. A lot of assists I know but when you want to be the top team in Engineering you have to act as part of a team. There is no I in team. As they say, Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM).  

 
 
Two more of the Maintenance Department's top men, Bobby Ward (below left) (NOW RETIRED) and Tom Wiseman (below right, now in Clontarf Depot), in their office assessing the work required to maintain the Conyngham Road fleet of buses. Like most things nowadays, everything has to be kept within budget so spending has to be carefully managed whilst obviously retaining  standards of safety and general maintenance.  Congratulations to Tom (see under picture).

Tom Wiseman(above right) has moved to Clontarf Depot Maintenance Dept . Tom started his career with 'CIE' as an apprentice mechanic in the CIE Road Freight section in Drogheda. In 1982 Tom went to Clontarf Bus Garage as a fully qualified mechanic where he spent 6 enjoyable years. He 'transferred' (no fee involved ) to Donnybrook Dublin Bus Garage in 1988 and after 11 years of service in Donnybrook, Tom got promoted to Shift Foreman. In 2000 he became Maintenance Controller, another promotion. ( Is there no end to these promotions?...). This year (2005), Tom got promoted to senior Foreman in Conyngham Road Garage, or 'TEAM CONYNGHAM ROAD DEPOT', as we like to be known as!!!
We wish Tom every success in his new job and we can ensure Tom that he will get our full support in his new surroundings. 
Tom lives in Ashbourne but with his trusty motorcycle Tom covers the long journey with ease and within the speed limit too. The reason I mention that is because Tom's other passion is Formula 1 motor racing so we wouldn't like people to think that Tom is  a speed merchant...okay! We welcome Tom very much to our team.  
By the way, we wish Martin Armstrong, (our previous Dock Foreman), best wishes in his new position at Dublin Bus Summerhill Garage.

Paul Maguire ( above left ) became Maintenance Controller in 2005. Paul had worked as a mechanic in Conyngham Road before transferring to Dublin Bus's new garage at Harristown, North Dublin in November 2004. We welcome Paul back to our team and wish him well in his new position. Paul gives each bus a thorough inspection on a regular basis as safety is Paul's and, indeed, everyones priority.Paul is presently (2009) with the Technical Department with Dublin Bus and may be moving to that department permanently. Best wishes to Paul from Team Conyngham Road. 

Harry Byrne ( above right ) is one of three Shunters in Conyngham Road garage. Madeleine and Jarek are the two others. Both Harry and Madeleine are from North Dublin whilst Jarek is from Northern Poland. They can drive anything with wheels be it a forklift truck or an Artic truck. They also attend breakdowns of buses when they occur with a complaint that requires the bus to be brought back to the garage safely.They are also involved in maintenance work as the need arises. They carry out the important function of maintaining the bus yard's fleet management as with so many buses in an often confined space, safety first is the motto, and Harry, Madeleine and Jarek ensure buses are arranged so as drivers can safely remove their bus for their particular duty. 

Foreman Peter Bramble ( below right ) is one of several Foremen at Conyngham Road that ensure the fleet of buses for road service is available to meet the requirements of the Traffic Department. Since 7th June 2005 'Team Conyngham Road Depot' have introduced a route allocation system that gives each bus route its own specific fleet of buses. Peter was instrumental in introducing this new system and with the dedicated support of his colleagues in the Maintenance Division, Peter ensures we have the RIGHT BUSES - RIGHT ROUTE - ON TIME system working day in day out.

Pat O'Neill (pictured above left) was a 'lead-hand' mechanic in the maintenance department. Pat spends some of his time at the computer keeping records of all the work carried out in the department. Of course, when not taking over some of the duties of a foreman, Pat is busy repairing buses and, need I say, ensuring the safety of the buses is paramount. Pat is an affable type of guy and is well liked by his peers. Pat has now moved to AUSTRALIA where he will no doubt be a huge success as a mechanic/engineer. Best wishes to Pat and his partner on their new life down under.

Enda Farrell (pictured left) is one of many mechanics or engineers in Conyngham Road Garage*. Enda is from Co. Offaly and travels from his home town to Dublin every day for work. Now is that dedication or what?   Enda was trained during his apprenticeship with Frank Tuomey (rally driver extraordinaire) . Enda is a keen sports fan and enjoys his fishing, so there!! In the picture Enda is working on a replacement gearbox for one of the buses under repair. You might also like to know that the grease and dirt on Enda is genuine and not just put there for the photograph. *Enda moved to Phibsboro garage in late 2006 and since has become a VOLVO support technician. In early 2009 Enda returned to Conyngham Road maintenance department and we welcome him back to the team. Now that he's obviously a fully qualified mechanic/engineer Enda says he doesn't take instructions off Frank Tuomey anymore (ha ha).2012 AND ENDA HAS BEEN PROMOTED TO dOCK fOREMAN - CONGRATULATIONS ENDA.

Sean Quinn (pictured right) is an Administrative Officer with Dublin Bus. Sean is well known within Maintenance Departments throughout Dublin Bus because he travels to every garage when the need arises for his services. Sean covers for the Senior Administration Officers in each garage when the likes of holidays come around or other such needs. Although Sean's face may be unfamiliar to some in Conyngham Road, his father John was a well known Inspector at Conyngham Road before becoming a Training and Development Inspector with the Dublin Bus Training School based at Phibsboro Garage. Sean, you are always welcome at 'Team Conyngham Road Depot'.
