Gardaí from the Kilkenny Roads Policing Unit were on a covert patrol of the N76 between Callan and Kilkenny yesterday afternoon when they witnessed very dangerous driving.
The gardaí observed a 40ft rig overtaking a school bus on a solid double white line approaching a staggered junction in the Cuffesgrange area.

The N76 has been subject to multiple road traffic collisions in recent months.
"With great power comes great responsibility," gardaí stated.
