The image above shows the allocation of EU funding for cycling by country 2014-2020. The horizontal data is in millions of Euro.
Getting EU funding usually requires match funding by local authorities or other agencies in member states. But, in any case, the allocation for Ireland seems to be zero or close to zero. Did any Irish authorities or agencies even apply?
This graph speaks volumes. Never known a UK cycling project that wasn't funded. Shame hardly anyone ever applies. pic.twitter.com/GHLeaSqB24
