Male cyclist seriously injured in collision with car driver

Gardai are attending the scene where a male cyclist was serious injured in a collision with a car driver on the N18 southbound between Junction 9, Shannon, and Junction 8, Sixmilebridge.

The Garda press office said: “Gardaí and emergency services are at the scene of a serious collision between a cyclist and a car on the N18 southbound between Junction 8 and 9. The cyclist (male) was treated at the scene for serious injuries and has been taken to Limerick Hospital.”

“The road is currently closed southbound and diversions are in place. The road is expected to fully re-open shortly.”

“Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact Ennis Garda Station on 065 6848100.”

CORRECTION: Based on information from the Gardai this article originally stated the collision happened on the N7 junction 7, this was corrected as above.

I am editor of and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.
