Work of filmmaker, cycling advocate Paddy Cahill to be showcased in Limerick

The Limerick Cycling Campaign has said it is to celebrate the work and advocacy of the late filmmaker Paddy Cahill at an event on November 24.

The event is to showcase a collection of his short films on urban cycling in Dublin and Amsterdam, along with input on the night from friends and collaborators.

When Cahill died from an illness in hospital earlier this year there was a flood of tributes from cycling, filmmaking and architectural circles. He lived in Dublin after growing up near Shannon, Co Clare and studying in Limerick.

Hello Reader... 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 February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
