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

Celine Ross at the Garda press office said: “Gardaí in Kilmainham are appealing for witnesses following a collision involving a pedal cyclist and a vehicle, on Conyngham Road, Dublin 8 on the 5th May 2019.

Gardai said that the collision occurred at around 2am on Parkgate St outbound towards Conyngham Road. Ross said: “The driver failed to remain at scene and continued in the direction of Islandbridge.”

“A 28 year-old man was taken by ambulance to The Mater Hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries.”

“Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact them. Anyone who travelled along Conyngham Road on the 5th May 2019 between 1.50am and 2.20am to contact Gardaí.”

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