...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'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...

She added:A male, in his 30s, pedal cyclist was seriously injured on Conyngham Road, Dublin 8 at approximately 2.15pm. He was taken to St. James Hospital where he later passed away and a post mortem will take place. The female driver, in her 40s, received minor injuries.”

The statement issued at 5.38 said that thee scene of the collision on Conyngham Road is currently closed as Garda Forensic Collision Investigators are at scene and that road diversions are in place.

Gardaí in Kilmainham are seeking the assistance of any members of the public who travelled this road and who may be able to offer any further information or witnessed the collision to contact them at 01 – 6669700, The Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111, or any Garda Station.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *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's journalism open to all. Thank you.
