The Garda press office said: “The cyclist was brought to the Mater Hospital with minor injuries, and roads have now reopened.”

...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...

The collision happened across the road from the Samuel Beckett Bridge.

The truck has four axles, so, is not covered by the five axle restrictions in the city centre.

...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.


  1. maybe we need to add a length restriction as well,this truck seemed to be carrying polystyrene insulation so did not need more axles and would be under most weight restrictions but still handled and had the same blind spots and turning circle as many five axle trucks.
