...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

“A female pedal cyclist in her [30s] was in collision with a car at Rathass, Tralee at approximately 8pm on the 29 of January,” said a Garda statement.

“She was taken to Kerry General Hospital in Tralee in a serious condition and subsequently died last night as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.”

CORRECTION: The victim’s age has been correct to reflect the woman’s age as reported in the case’s court report.


...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.


  1. Why do they always state the Cyclist was in a collision with a car,this happens extremely rarely. What usually happens is the Car was in a collision with the Cyclist ,the Car struck the Cyclist.They should get it right the first time,it implies that they are lessening the Motorists culpability in the accident. They are also very economical about the events,just a statement that the Cyclist was in a collision and died. Better to call it an RTA or RTC RoadTraffic Accident or Road Traffic Collision. We shall probably never know what really happened ,they never want to give out the reasons why.

    There never is a follow up with them trying to improve conditions on the section of the Rad to stop this happening in future. It is just filed away and becomes a statistic.
