Cycling groups put out “urgent call to action” on South Dublin Quietway

Cycling groups have put out an urgent call of action for members of the public to lobby councillors ahead of a meeting this afternoon which will discuss the South Dublin Quietway.

This follows reporting on Saturday night that Dublin’s South East area councillors are getting lobbied heavily by objectors to the South Dublin Quietway walking and cycling route ahead of a local area committee meeting on Monday afternoon.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

I Bike Dublin tweeted: “URGENT CALL TO ACTION: @DubCityCouncil’s South East Area Committee will vote on the Kimmage-Donnybrook Quietway tomorrow afternoon. We need you to contact your councillors as there’s a real risk that it won’t be passed. Find out more here:”


  1. I live just off Neagh Road and use this route already for my commute. I’ve sent emails to all my local councillors this morning, following up on previous emails. I’m not overly optimistic this will get through though. Possibly it would have more chance if it was introduced as a trial for three months using reversible infrastructure like large planters etc. I think once implemented, the benefits would be so obvious that much of the negativity would evaporate.
