Bus services have been withdrawn for a number of schools in Dublin, in what is set to be a major blow to thousands of pupils.

The move will mean large numbers of parents will have to drive their children unless they pay private bus operators more than €1,000 per child to drop them off.

Dublin Bus has written to principals in several schools telling them it is suspending the services.
