...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...

On Sunday, Limerick City and County Council in partnership with Limerick Cycling Campaign is to host a Cyclovia event:

On Sunday, College Green will go car free from 12pm to 4pm. Dublin City Council said: “The theme of this year’s European Mobility Week is ‘Safe Walking and Cycling’, which focuses on the importance of walking and cycling and the positive impacts they can have on our health, our bank balance and our environment. This is a free event for the whole family with lots of fun activities, including e-bike and cargo bike demos, Spokeswoman cycle tour, and a live BMX stunt show.”

Fingal County Council said: “As part of European Mobility Week, Enjoy Malahide are delighted to announce that Fingal County Council is holding a ‘Car Free Day’ in Malahide on Sunday, September 22. New Street area will be closed to traffic from 10am – 2pm (exceptions for buses, PSV’s, emergency vehicles and local access) to allow pedestrians and cyclists move freely in the vicinity for the morning.”

The council added: “Staff from the Road Safety Section in Fingal will also be present, along with face painters, balloon modellers, glitter tattoo artist, magician and other street entertainment. It would be great to have your support on the day.”

...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.


  1. ??? Why did DLR Council host a cycle to Dalkey and back on the same day as the #ClimateStrike? What time is/was it on at, and how come we did not get told about it? And, surely an event like this should happen at a weekend when families could attend?
