Ireland: Talking Travel… And Cycling

on

I’m off on my travels again next week to a new (for me) European country… Ireland! More specifically I’ll be speaking at the Lismore Immrama Festival of Travel Writing – more details on the poster below – on Saturday 17th June at 12.30pm. If you happen to be near Lismore, come along! Earlier this week I was interviewed by Mary O’Neill for her ‘On The Fringe‘ programme on WLR FM and you can listen to what I had to say here:

I will, however, be using the opportunity of visiting county Waterford to experience a bit of Irish cycling and my plan is to venture along the newly opened Waterford Greenway:

Looks good, no? Has anyone cycled along it? More details can be found on the website. The only issue I may have is that I’ll be driving. As the greenway is a disused railway line, I’m assuming there isn’t a train to get me back from Dungarvan to Waterford at the end of the 46km cycle. There must be buses, no? More investigation needed. Bearing in mind its location, it will come as no surprise that the Waterford Greenway is also part of the Eurovelo 1… Watch this space!

P.S. If you aren’t in Ireland next week (highly likely…) I’ll be in London on June 24th and York on June 25th to talk about my journey from ‘Spain to Norway on a Bike Called Reggie‘. Follow the links for more details.
