Man arrested following recent Clontarf hit-and-run

A man in his 20s was arrested today by Gardai in Clontarf who are investigating a fatal hit-and-run at the junction of Clontarf Road and Howth Road on June 30.

A 62-year-old man cycling a bicycle was knocked down in the collision and died shortly afterwards. He was named locally as Eugene Maher from Whitehall.

The man who was arrested earlier today in connection with the collision was  detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Clontarf Garda Station. He was released tonight without charge and Gardai said that they are preparing a file for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

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 February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
