I am Cathal O’ Carroll owner of The Spokesman.
The Spokesman started in 2010. I try to practice what I preach and I have participated in the Leinster Loop, Wicklow 200, Sean Kelly cycle, Mizen to Malin, Ring of Kerry, The Rebel Tour and Ride Prudential London.
I call to locations during the week and repair bicycles while people are working. I also call into offices and homes to repair bicycles for individuals and families. On Sundays, The Spokesman provides a full service at Dun Laoghaire People’s Park farmers Market
Customers love the service because I repair bicycles quickly. They don’t have to drop bike to a shop and wait days to get their bike back. Because I repair bicycles, The Spokesman also sells new bicycles, accessories and clothing. I sell new bikes under the bike to work scheme. Brands include KTM and FUJI. I also rent road bicycles, so please check my roadbikehire.ie website for more details about road bike hire. I deliver the new bikes to people’s homes or office.
The Spokesman also provides pre-event and on event support for Charity Cycles eg. Cycle Against Suicide.
My clients include: Diageo, Ulster Bank, Facebook, Trinity College, Fineos, Oracle, AIB, Aecom, State Street, the IFSC, A&L Goodbody and IADT.
The Spokesman was a finalist the Green Awards 2013 and the winner of Special Merit/Micro Enterprise Award for the 2014 DLRChamber Envirocon Awards
