Between 1994 & 1998 Bus Éireann took delivery of 147 Volvo Caetano bodied B10M-62s. Many can be found on Express routes all over Ireland. However some early deliveries are now being downgraded onto high-profile rural/stage carriage routes.

Bus Éireann has started taking delivery of 15 more of the type however these are leased and fleet numbers start at VC201 to stress this. These have Caetano Enigma bodies. These are due to be returned off lease imminently

In 2003 30 more were delivered and numbered VC301-330. Some are in CIÉ Tours livery for tours and others in Bus Éireann livery for Expressway services.
