The Cork group was set up in 1953 and meets for cycles on a voluntary basis. During the Summer months, long and short Thursday night cycles start from the Cork Opera House. Saturday morning cycles are organized all year around. There is no charge and cyclists who come along are expected to obey the rules of the road and must take full responsibility for their own safety and that of other road users. There are weekends away every month except January and February. If anyone over the age of 18 wishes to come along you are more than welcome to join us.
I am a member of the committee and I volunteer documenting outings, helping with social media, as well as the redesign and update of the group's website.
The Cork Non-Fiction Writers Group started in June of 2008 and it's a group where fellow writers share their work and also offer feedback to each other.
We meet at the Cork City Central Library on Grand Parade on the 2nd & 4th Thursday of each month from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. No membership fee! Just call in, listen, join in. You will be very welcome.
I am a member of the group and I volunteer helping them redesign and update their blog.
