Event Details

Cork City

Join us on April 21, in Nano Nagle Place, Cork for the fifth stop on the #andshecycles Roadshow.

4.30pm: Photography exhibition and check-in

5-6pm: Panel discussion followed by Q&A

Irish Examiner Journalist, Esther McCarthy, will lead the event as MC, along with panellists including, UCC student and Green-Campus Committee member, Aine Ni Dhalaigh, Green-Schools Travel Officer Lisa O’Grady, and participating secondary school students.

Esther McCarthy is the Life/Style editor for the Irish Examiner and she’s a panelist on The Today Show on RTE and can be heard on Red FM every Thursday and Friday on Dave Mac’s Drive. She’s cycled from a young age and her trusty and rusty bike was her main mode of transport to secondary school and to college in UCC. She considers it “fierce handy altogether” that she ended up married to Cillian who opened a bike shop after they got married, as it has significantly reduced her puncture repair bills. She recently upgraded to an electric bike to battle the hills of Cork’s northside on her cycle to work. She’d like to reiterate IT’S NOT CHEATING and she only turns it on for the really big hills and Cillian, the cheque is in the post. She’d love to see more females saddling up. It’s freedom, it’s getting where you need to be on your own pedal power, it makes you strong, your body, your spirit, your mind. “Helmet hair aside, biking is the best!”

 


There are water fountains at the venue so we are encouraging you to bring a flask to refill your water. We are also encouraging active travel and there is bike parking available onsite at the plaza. Nano Nagle Place is a 22 minute walk or a 10 minute cycle from Cork (Kent) Station and discounted parking is available at Q-Park Grand Parade (ask for disks at reception). On street paid parking is available on Douglas Street and there is often parking during daytime hours on Evergreen Street.

Please note this this is a public community event admissible by registered ticket only. On the evening there will be press photography and audio recording of the panel discussion followed by Q&A 

We’d love to see you there and you can share the hashtag below on your social media.

#andshecycles square


In 2019 Green-Schools worked with teenage girls to develop the #andshecycles campaign to shine a light on the barriers currently reducing the rate of girls choosing to cycle. The greatest success from the campaign launch was that it stirred up many necessary conversations around the social barriers which girls face in relation to cycling. #andshecycles is a national campaign that wants to help girls get back on their bikes while addressing some of the reasons they’re reluctant to in the first place.

Following the much anticipated #andshecycles launch event in Dublin in September 2019, the next phase of the campaign will take to the road with roadshow-style, regional events around the country. The #andshecycles Roadshow will be held in various different towns and cities across Ireland between February and May 2020.
