...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The councillors to pledge their support include Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr James Collins (Fianna Fáil) based in Limerick City West, Cllr Ciaran Cuffe (Greens) for Dublin North Inner City, Cllr Pádraig McEvoy (independent) for Kildare’s Maynooth Municipal District and Cllr Dermot Looney (Soc Dems) for Templeogue-Terenure in the South Dublin County Council area.
Local election candidates Neasa Hourigan (Greens) for Cabra Glasnevin, Peter Horgan (Labour) for Cork City South East Ward, Oliver Moran (Greens) for Cork City North East and Peter Kavanagh (Greens) for Dublin Mid West.

The first batch to sign-up were: Dublin City Council councillors Patrick Smyth (Fine Gael), Claire Byrne (Greens), and Paul Hand (Independent) and candidate Maria Mulvany (Fine Gael); Fingal councillor Roderic O’Gorman (Greens); Limerick candidates Elisa O’Donovan (Soc Dems) and Brian Leddin (Greens), and Waterford candidate Marc Ó Cathasaigh (Greens).

Contact your local politicians and candidates

Tell your local councillors and your TDs that you want Cycling for All across Ireland with the required design and funding of 20% of the transport budget to back it up. Check if they are signed up at the national list or local list  (these lists will be updated).

If you don’t know your local politicians or need to find their contact details, you can find them via

The important thing is to keep it simple, tell them why you value Cycling for All — for TDs and Senators include the link: and for councillors send them

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
