A Bloomsday bike messenger rally photocall last June
More than 14,000 bicycles, worth in excess of €2m, have been stolen over the past two-and-a-half years.
The scale of bike thefts is revealed in figures compiled by the Garda Analysis Services, which show that of the 14,000 bikes stolen since January 2016, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway are being targeted specifically.
These four cities account for 83% of the total number of thefts.
More than 6,000 bikes were stolen last year, a 7.5% increase year-on-year.

Could you use a greyhound on your sofa?
I’m trying to find a young female greyhound a home in Dublin. Unfortunately, she is at risk of being put down and I’ve been trying hard to avert that from happening.
Sunny is a young greyhound and Ideally she would like to meet a girl her age as she read once, there’s no better best friend to a little girl than a dog, and Sunny would really like to be someone’s best friend.
Failing that, Sunny is happy with anyone who could show her love and affection, and she’s been working really hard to find a good owner, she has all her vaccinations and even a certificate in good behaviour!!
Her hobbies include; running in the park and cuddling on the sofa.
So, if you know anyone who would like to welcome Sunny into their lives or if you think you can be Sunny’s best friend, please contact Kanzi Kamel; 0874603640

I know you don’t normally do this but, can I ask your assistance in trying to reconnect my lost and very lonely HTC One M8 that I lost on a recent trip to Dublin Zoo.
G Raffe has been of great assistance but can only see so far out of his enclosure. It was last used inside the zoo according to my tracker and whatsapp and I had it in my hand on Chesterfield Ave, directly opposite the zoo entrance.
I put up a couple of small Lost & Found signs on a tree behind a white bench as that’s where I sat for a few minutes and contemplated how good life can be from time to time. :)
Trinity Point, Leinster Street, Dublin 2.
