Posted 03 October 2015
The Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened Cahill Cycles new bicycle shop at Monread Commercial Park, Naas on Thursday October 1st. Mr. Kenny arrived punctually at 10.30am and left over an hour later for his next appointment which was the opening of Kerry
Foods in Naas. An Taoiseach is an enthusiastic cyclist. who partakes in many cycling sportives each year and the link between Cahill Cycles and The Taoiseach goes back a number of
The day the leader of the country visited Cahill Cycles will certainly go down as a memorable event in the history of the company. Cahill Cycles have been in the bicycle business in Naas since 1947. They commenced trading at No. 1 Sallins Road and remained there until 1998. They then formed a wholesale division, supplying bicycles and bicycles
spares to shops throughout Ireland. Bicycles were assembled under the “Cahill” brand on their assembly line and wheels were built on their robotic wheel building machines which were well received by their customers.
The move back to Monread in Naas sees them consolidating their expertise back into the retail bicycle market. Not only are they experts in the mechanical end of bicycles but through their cycling coaching they motivate their clients to get fit through cycling. When a cycling event is coming up Cahill’s give advice on coaching topics such as hill climbing, descending, nutrition and many more topics.
Enda Kenny thanked Cahill’s for servicing his bike and commented that the hills he had to climb were made so much easier by the expert gear adjustments made to his bike! Mr. Kenny is interested in promoting cycling and it’s good to see him take time out to stop, talk, listen and have fun with those on the ground.

Bike to Work Scheme
01 January 2009
On 1 January 2009 a new government scheme to encourage people to cycle to work came into force. Cycling keeps you fit, it’s fast, cheap and reliable – and it’s good for the environment.
Participating in the bicycle scheme is easy. If your employer decides to take part, they simply buy the bike and equipment on your behalf and off you go. Its is up to you and your employer to decided whether they buy the bike outright for you or whether you pay for it via ‘salary sacrifice’. Either way you save on tax.
