Meet Teresa Watkins from Youghal, County Cork. Teresa uses her electric bicycle for her every business, shopping and meeting friends. But she really loves touring the surrounding area, cycling the same routes her great-grandparents did.

“I can just take off and know I’m not going to be exhausted. It’s transformed my life.”Teresa Watkins, Youghal

In the three and a half years I’ve had my electric bicycle, I’ve travelled 3,500 miles in and around Youghal. I don’t feel the hills. The inclines and the valleys are no trouble. I can cycle for over six hours continuously on my electric bicycle. It’s just the best.

In recent years, my concern for the environment lead me to look into alternative modes of transport. I didn’t want to buy a car. I wanted to be able to get some fresh air and exercise – but transport my shopping to the hilltop in Youghal, where I live.

I haven’t missed owning a car. I can cover distances that I could never cycle on a push bike. I can meander and enjoy life at my leisure without the worry that it’s going to be a tough cycle home. I can just take off and know I’m not going to be exhausted. It’s transformed my life.

My electric bicycle compliments my ethics and my lifestyle perfectly. Travelling by electric bicycle helps me to orientate myself on the landscape and really connect with it. I’m not damaging the environment. I’m not making noise and disturbing nature.

There is also the sheer joy of being able to cycle pretty much anywhere. I’m able to take any little side-road or boreen and find it no trouble climbing hills.

My favourite place to cycle is the Blackwater river valley. It’s a beautiful historic landscape that hasn’t changed in hundreds of years. I’m especially drawn here because my great grandparents cycled here often, even on their honeymoon! I’m cycling where they did, looking at the same views they looked at. I love that connection to them.

My ancestors, the Horgan Brothers, were known to cycle from town to town showing magic lantern shows, evolving as pioneers in photography and film, often featuring the beautiful locations where they cycled.

Today, I cycle these same roads under the same trees and take photographs and film just as they did. My electric bicycle enables me to do this with ease. Loaded with a flask of tea and sandwiches, my little stool, camera and tripod, I’m gone for the day … bliss!

John Hinde postcard (circa 1960’s) reads: Youghal is one of the foremost seaside resorts of Co. Cork, and is finely situated at the mouth or the Blackwater river, with a fine strand and every holiday amenity. Youghal was occupied by the Danes, and then by the Normans, receiving its first charter from King John, who was supplied by the town with three fighting ships. Youghal was fortified with walls and towers, most of which remain. Of these the renovated Clock Gate, which spans the main street, is the most picturesque. #youghal See MoreSee Less

We called him "Freddy Fly" one of my sisters asked my wee brother Tommy to run up to Freddy Fly's for some tags. He came back a while later and said he was closed. My sister asked if he went to the right shop and Tommy replied yes he did and it had F. Fly over the door.

Love my beautiful town… Youghal you are amazingly, with all nice people's 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞❤️

Never a dull moment in Youghal: Construction of the new Youghal Beach Boardwalk is well underway linking the Redbarn Blue Flag Beach and the Claycastle Blue Flag Beach. When complete it will be the longest ocean front wooden boardwalk in the country.

This picture show the wooden boards ready to be installed on the steel and concrete frame on September 20th 2020. There has been much talk and admiration from locals and visitors as to how fast the phase 2 construction of the eco-boardwalk is progressing and well done to all involved.
You can only imagine the view from this vantage point when the Ironman swimmers take to the water in next years much anticipated event.

I don't get it either… but I'm not a big boardwalk person. It does create access to those with difficulty travelling over the sand, that is a positive.

Can’t wait I’ve never been out passed claycastle car park looking forward to making it out to the hotel

And it's not for a short distance.. all the way down to redbarn. Can't believe the locals allowed this or had a part in it's decision..the boardwalk is so far out there is very little nice sand left to lay on and no protection from the wind..now where is the privacy.. surely I am not the only person who feels this way??

The Quality hotel is a blot on the landscape and has horrendous light pollution in the evenings it put us off even walking down there in the evening. Would it be possible for people to ask them to make their hotel nicer and more sympathetic to the beautiful surroundings.

Brilliant work can't believe it's going so fast it will be just fantastic for all keep up the good work. 👏

Beautiful a great asset for Youghal well done to all

It will be a great addition to the area

They have destroyed the nicest part of the beach for me. No longer can we sit in the grasses to avoid the wind ..and no longer can we enjoy the quiet part of the beach.. it is the worst decision ..and to me made by people who obviously don't go to that part of the beach or at all. Why not build it behind the grasses where the walk always was. Now there will be no privacy anywhere . Stupid stupid decision and a big mistake .. I will no longer be coming to youghal.. beach . Seriously saddened as it has been my favorite spot for years.

People LIKE to walk on the beach . This is just a ridiculous waste of money and you have destroyed the most beautiful part of youghal beach and for what ???

It is NOT an asset for youghal! It's destruction of a beautiful natural area. Sad sad sad

Let’s hope bit doesn’t get blown away like the last one a couple of years ago.

Amazing can't wait to visit !!

Someone please explain to me why this was needed???

The longest doesn't make it the best !

Great news 💯👍💯

Great work 👍

Margo Mullins they linked us together next year ye might come down be great xx

Blessing of restored shrine at Sarsfield’s Terrace, Youghal:

Picture: The Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr. Mary Linehan Foley at the blessing of the renovated shrine to Our Lady followed by Mass for the Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Sarsfield Terrace, Youghal, Co. Cork, on Tuesday 8th September 2020. Also in the picture are Margo Kenefick, Deirdre McCarthy and Elizabeth Kelly.

V. Rev. Canon William Bermingham P.P. celebrated the social distancing outdoor mass assisted by Rev. Patrick Corkery C.C. and Rev. Brendan Mallon C.C. Hymns and prayers were sung by the talented duo of Geraldine Mulcahy and Tisha Collins. The sacristan Liam Ryan was on duty and Noel Cronin of CRY104fm recording the event and provided the PA system.

The Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr. Mary Linehan Foley was in attendance along with other dignitaries. A huge crowd turned out in the autumnal evening such is the strong devotion to Mary – Queen of Heaven. The Papal flag was flying high on the newly erected flag pole and added colour to the joyous occasion.

The work of construction and the dedication and blessing of the shrine was filmed and captured for posterity by Billy Drake, a long term resident of ‘Sars’ as it is affectionately known.
At the end of the ceremony Canon Bermingham praised the huge input by the community in the renovation of the shrine. All work was done voluntarily and under the spiritual guidance of Fr. Corkery.

The statue of Our Lady is an important focal point in the area ever since the original shrine was built back in 1989. Although the statue and the lawn was well kept and maintained over the years by the late Annie Lawton, residents, and council workers, evidence of corrosion at the base was spotted during painting and cleaning a year ago and was deemed beyond restoration.

The new statue was acquired from the nearby Bayview Community House ( the former convent attached to the Cottage Hospital) and thanks to Susan Wall, Acting Director of Services, HSE South for her assistance. Thanks also to the local council for supplying all the building materials, the local clergy, and to Noel Browne Paving Centre for doing a fantastic job hoisting the statue with his lorry mounted crane on to the new plinth.

The black and gold marble plaque on the front of the plinth with the inscription ‘2020 Voluntary renovation by residents and friends of Sarsfield terrace’ was donated by Adrian Budds of Budds Memorials Youghal. The concrete paths leading to the monument were laid by the residents from the terrace and Raheen Park. The statue also got a new make-over and was meticulously repainted in the traditional blue colours of Mary.
