Cliffs of Moher Facebook follies
Fears as cyclists risk death for Facebook fame
The Cliffs of Moher Visitor’s Center and North Clare Fine Gael councillor Martin Conway have asked Facebook to remove photographs of a daredevil stunt on the cliffs.
They fear that it could encourage visitors to behave in a similar manner.
Photographs of people cycling on a ledge, no more than 3-foot-wide, along the Cliffs of Moher (700-feet high) have been condemned as “foolhardy” and “idiotic”. The cyclists completed the dare devil stunt with no safety equipment and could have very easily plunged into the sea.
Katherine Webster, the director of the Cliffs of Moher visitor experience said “I believe there is a lot of confusion among Facebook users and some of the fans of the other page have connected to it mistaking it for the official page.”
Hans Rey and Steve Peat are the two men photographed. The series of photos show the two mountain bikers cycling along a 65-foot stretch of the cliffs back in 2006. Since completing the stunt both cyclists have warned others against attempting it.
John Lawless, the administrator for the Facebook page in question did not comment on whether the photographs would be removed from the page.
