Cyclists

They still have 12 parking spaces provided free of charge by the council. It's great when public money goes to support big business, doesn't it?

Again, ill repeat, some people cannot stand the fact that public money goes into public infrastructure and services, but would rather cater to the whims of private business above all else.

There will always be whingers and moaners, like that person in the Echo because the council didn't roll out the red carpet for them.
that came from the right mouth

Excuse my French, but the owners of the shop can get fucked.
They don't own the land, and planning was sought and gotten two years ago.

Big business crocodile tears.

'John Grace, who owns a fast food outlet on Cook Street, John Grace’s Fried Chicken, has asked An Bord Pleanála to refuse planning permission for the redevelopment of the former hotel site claiming it would deteriorate the local streetscape.

Mr Grace said the closure of the hotel, whose entrance was on Cook Street, had resulted in a considerable loss of footfall and general activity on Cook Street – a loss he claimed which would be made permanent by approving RESAM’s plans'.

Nonsense.

The system in place there worked perfectly in the 30 odd years Ive frequented the place.

Considering how many objections you put in around your place John you'd think you might have a bit more understanding toward a business owner trying to stop their trade being damaged by loopy planning.
'Worked perfectly'... despite all the near-misses and accidents outside the place.
There wasn't even a footpath for pedestrians FFS!

Shows your priorities. Fuck everyone else as long as you can scoot about the place in your banger.

Is this the same site that is being refurbished and Easons are moving to?
Why post an article that is 4 years old?

Not sure what that has to do with anything but yea, whatever.

Yes that level of anger and aggression from jank definitely demonstrates a bully type character.

Then we have the warrior defence of anyone on a bike 🙄.

Jank is John Grace, end of story.

John, where does your chicken come from? Is it South America?

yeah there is some confusion but the actually law is that it is not compulsory to cycle on a cycle lane( though its usually a bloody good idea like)

Cyclists don’t have to use cycle lanes new legislation confirms​

Genuine question here - if cyclists don't have to use those separate cycle lanes, then why on earth are the roadways being narrowed to make room for cycle lanes???

Surely by narrowing the lanes for motorists it gives them less room to safely pass cyclists? Why on earth would there be a drive (;)) to create separate cycle lanes when it's actually leading to endangering cyclists (who don't use the cycle lanes)?
 
Really, what's across the road?
Surely an advocate of safe cycling isn't proposing parking in a hard shoulder? As you know this is normally for use by pedestrians and cyclists.
Am, there's now a path that peds and cyclists can use so ya can park in the hard shoulder like what's been happening all along, I'm sure you're aware entitled motorists have been doing this way before the new path went in anyway. God forbid you've to walk abit 😂
