  1. Yes I have noticed that myself,with the beautiful weather I sometimes go for a Cycle out as far as Dalky and Bulloch Harbour and on the way pass by here. On the way back I sometimes pass the Harbour area of Dunlaoghaire and go along the track beside the Railway which eventually brings you to Brighton Vale and Seapoint and stop for a while . Loads of people bringing their Bikes with them to the Seaside it is great to see this.
