Dutch cycling documentary Irish premiere screens on Thursday

NEWS IN BRIEF: Waterford City is to host the first Irish screening of the Dutch cycling documentary, Why We Cycle, tomorrow evening.

The screening — which is free — is to take place at Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery this Thursday at 7pm as part of the launch of the Waterford Cycling Campaign.

I am editor of IrishCycle.com and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.


  1. Great work by Marc O Cathasaign a schoolteacher in Tramore to get this going, and the screening licence has been facilitated by Cyclist.ie (www,cyclist.ie), the Irish Cycling Advocacy Network (ICAN). We hope to screen this film in a number of loactions around the country over the coming months! Watch out for a venue close to you!

  2. I look forward to seeing this in Dublin soon.
