...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 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The council said: “Works are progressing well with the new pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting Grange, Tramore Valley Park and Douglas. We now need your help in naming Cork City’s newest bridge!”

The council said that suggested names that honour, celebrate, or remember a person, group or events of significance that have helped to shape the City of Cork will be considered. More details on how to make a suggestion can be found at
