...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.

Cork City Council said: “Vernon Mount Bridge is OPEN! The incredible new #activetravel amenity sits over the N40 and spans from Grange Road to Tramore Valley Park’s pedestrian and cycle route.”

“The new route is 1.5 kilometres long, 4 metres wide, and is fully accessible to all ages and abilities, safely linking Grange into the city via Tramore Valley Park,” the council said.

The council said that the four-metre-wide pathway will also support people with mobility needs and includes environmentally sensitive public lighting.
