Brother seeks to record cycling near-misses at junction his sister was killed

An appeal has gone out from the brother of Donna Fox, who was killed when cycling to work in 2016, seeking others who have had collisions or near misses at the junction of Seville Place and Guild Street in Dublin.

Neil Fox tweeted out the appeal yesterday. He has also previously tweeted has frustration that the design of the junction in the Docklands has not sufficiently changed since his sister’s death.

A row of flexible bollards was installed on the cycle lane up to and beyond the stop line but some cyclists now complain that this forces them into a narrow space at the junction between left turning vehicles and pedestrians guardrails.

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 CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.
