A man who was cycling a bicycle is in a critical condition after being involved in a collision with a motorist in a car last night on the Leopardstown Road in Sandyford.
Gardai said the 38-year-old man was seriously injured and taken to St Vincent’s Hospital after the collision at around 8.30pm. A statement said that male driver of the car was uninjured in the collision.
The incident is being investigated by officers from Blackrock Garda Station, which can be contacted at (01) 6665200. The Garda Press Office said: “The road was closed to facilitate a Forensic Collision examination and was reopened again at 3am on the 21st March 2015.”
Hello Reader... 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
