A 24-year-old woman on a bicycle was seriously injured in collision with truck driver last night in Dublin.

“Gardaí were called to a serious road traffic collision on Dorset Street with the junction of Eccles Street involving a female pedal cyclist and a lorry driver. The incident occurred on the 24th April 2019 at approximately 9.25pm,” said Celine Ross at the Garda press office.

Subscription drive update: reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).

If you can help push above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

*** 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, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year 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 June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via

  1. I hope this woman recovers fully.

    Pass this junction several times a day. Massive amounts of blatant red light breaking by drivers – meaning right-turning cars get stranded and then end up driving through active pedestrian crossing (and oncoming cyclists at the head of the adjacent queue). A Garda posted here for a few hours would make a killing, even better put cameras up.

  2. Maybe it is time for the Garda to start to spot-check drivers for valid driving licences instead of stopping cyclists for not having hi-vis’s. 120.000 drivers on the roads without proper exams passed and I presume without proper knowledge of the Rules of the road.

  3. It was a roadworks truck who hit her. Just left my college and seen the scene. [company name removed by editor] haulage truck. Taking no responsibility for whatever. Girl is still in hospital with both her legs slashed undertaking 8th surgery on both legs. [company name removed by editor] owner promised and came to hospital and did took all the responsibility and promised to cover all the treatment and rehab costs.but since no word from them whatsoever.

    • @Aurel — thanks for your comment, however, I’ve removed the name of the company due to defamation laws.
