...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...

The Garda Press Office said: “A 45-year-old woman who was cycling on her bicycle on the inbound lane of the Malahide Road was struck by a silver opel astra at the junction. Emergency services were contacted and the woman was taken to Beaumont Hospital where her injuries are described as critical. The male driver (early 60s) of the car was uninjured.”

Witnesses to this collision are asked to contact Coolock Garda Station on 01-666 4200, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
