  1. Cycling infrastructure in Dublin is ridiculous and dangerous. I almost got killed 2 years ago in the city centre by speeding car with a ‘blind’ driver?? Easily the measure that will improve quality of life in the city + helps to remove cars from the city centre. Moved month ago to Amsterdam, love it here. Wish smth similar was done for cycling in Dublin!
