In 1993 Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann trialed a Volvo B10B with Northern Counties bodywork. Bus Éireann bought if after the trial period was over. Later on Dublin Bus bought B10Bs but with Alexander bodywork and Bus Éireann's had Wright bodywork.
It was sent to Limerick to work on city services and is still in Limerick howver is now used on some rural/stage carriage services.
