Cyclist injured in posable hit and run in Cork

Gardai are seeking witnesses after a 32-year-old woman who was cycling was found seriously injured on the side of the road by a passerby.

She was found at Glen South, Naad, Kanturk at around 5.30pm yesterday and taken to University Hospital Cork with serious injuries.

A Garda statement issued this morning said that scene is being preserved pending a technical examination and local diversions are in place. The road has now reopened according to the AA Roadwatch.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kanturk Garda Station 029 – 20680 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

September subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com has reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October), but this is unlikely and so the new target is the end of the year.

If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers

  1. I hope she recovers from her injuries fully and there are no hindrance to her enjoying Cycling again. This sort of thing can be a terrible shock to someone and they might not get over the Psychological shock of it. I hope this culprit is caught fast and does major Gaol time for their Crime instead of the Judge just letting them off with a measly fine and suspended sentence.
