Long shot Donegal to Munster/Cork

Hi All,

Just wondering is there anyone able to bring a bike from Donegal to Cork in these times?
Spotted an interesting project but it's slightly outside my social distancing at the moment

I believe that if you use a transport/couriers company they should be able to get away with it.

Check anyvan.ie, pretty handy to get quotes. You put the job that you need and then receive a bunch of quotes, pretty good.

It might be about trying to say, "there now wee man, what seems to be yer problem" to the garda in a convincing accent.

Good idea. You should also have a few fake parcels in the back that are dated at least 4 weeks ago. If the Garda asks where the packages are going be sure to answer "I don't know and I don't fucking care". The subterfuge is complete.
