Last week I had the great oppourtunity to meet the Lord Mayor of Cork John Buttimer, along with Dermot McArdle of ESB ecars and Eoghan O Donoughue, my fellow e-car ambassador at Cork City Hall. We discussed our experience of e-car driving with him and how electric driving could be facilitated in Cork. He even drove one of the cars and charged at the newly updated charge point on the South Mall. Thank you so much to everyone involved for their time, especially the Lord Mayor.
As an aside I have also seen that there is a well organised volunteer network of charge points in the U.S. to augment the new charge point network. I would be interested in creating a similar network in Ireland if someone needs an emergency charge. What do people think?
