About Us

Chair:  Gerry Dornan       Secretary: John Murray     Website: Jonivar Skullerud

Our work covers three main areas –

  •  Representing cyclists and promoting cycling,
  • Lobbying government, and
  • Seeking changes in the road environment.

Maynooth Cycling Campaign is a core member of Cyclist.ie, the Irish Cycling Advocacy Network and is affiliated to the European Cycling Federation.


Membership is FREE. Just send your email address to maynoothcycling@gmail.com .

If you want to keep up to date with news, follow us on Facebook or on Twitter or ‘Like’ our articles.

If you want to be more active, contact us via email, Facebook or Twitter or call in to our regular meeting which is generally held on the third Monday of the month either at 7:00pm at O’Neill’s pub or at 12:40pm in the Pugin Hall, St. Patrick’s College. See Facebook for details.

If you would like to support our work financially, we recommend membership of Cyclist.ie at a cost of as little as €20 per annum. Any donation is welcome, but due to charitable status a donation of at least  €250pa attracts additional tax back from Revenue. See the Donate Button on the Sidebar.


Thank you.

    • Hi Irene,
      It depends what sort of cycling you want to do – whether you want a bicycle for normal everyday journeys wearing ordinary clothes or you want a road bike to cover ‘long’ distances wearing lycra. You may also want a bike for occasional longer distances than everyday journeys. If you decide what you want, any good bike shop should be able to advise you what would suit within your budget. If you are not sure, a second hand bike might be a good starting point. If you are an employee, depending on your employer, you may to able to purchase a bike under the Bike to Work scheme so good luck with your shopping.

      Regarding the Campaign, We would be delighted for you to join us. When we arrange our next meeting, I will forward details.


      • Hi, I want a long distance bike with lycra. Please do forward me on the details, Thanks, Irene


  1. Hi. I don’t suppose you would be interested in widening your remit to include all of North Kildare? As a regional grouping, you may have more influence than currently. I am based in Celbridge and would be interested in being involved in such a grouping.


    • While we are centred in Maynooth, we have made submission on the Royal Canal and Grand Canal (Arthurs Way). We have also established links with Naas through the Naas Neighbourhood Greenways and have made representations to councillors in the Leixlip-Celbridge municipal district so we take an interest in more than just Maynooth. Maynooth Cycling Campaign was started in the university by staff and students, some who lived in Celbridge so you will be more than welcome to join us.

      As stated on the website, we get together on the third Monday of the month. Unfortunately, we just met last Monday so it will be November before we meet again but if you would like to follow us on twitter it will keep you abreast of things. If you want to forward contact details, one of the group representatives will contact you.
