Dialogue, set on a public bus , in Ballyfermot Dublin 10.
The piece was written as quick shot [for radio]. Written for a college lecture.

Imagine a public bus, the sound of people speaking in the background....

PS. The wording is not to cause offence, it is an interpretation of a Ballyfermot person.
