Transport alternatives to be discussed at a Limerick event — named Transport for Limerick — this Tuesday. The meeting will take place in City Hall, Merchants Quay, Limerick at 7pm on Tuesday 21st of January.
Organisers describe the event as: “a series of short presentations from different groups reflecting on transport alternatives and transit life in Limerick. Organised by the Limerick Cycling Campaign, Limerick City Centre Business Forum, the Limerick Chapter of the Irish Georgian Society, Limerick Pedestrian Network, Limerick Cycle Bus, and other groups and individuals.”
They added: “The event will follow the Pecha Kucha format where each presentation consists of 20 slides, with 20 seconds allowed for each slide. The mission is to further inform the conversation around the consultation period of the Limerick Shannon Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy which is due to go for public consultation in early 2020 and to ensure that Limerick becomes a sustainable transport city, as prioritised in the Strategy.”
Registration is at eventbrite.ie.
September subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com has reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October), but this is unlikely and so the new target is the end of the year.
If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!
Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.
IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
