...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 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Hogan added: “At approximately 1.40pm a 34-year-old male pedal cyclist was in collision with a parked motor cycle on the main road from Adamstown to Carrickbyrne, Co Wexford. The injured man was taken to Wexford General Hospital with serious injuries and was subsequently pronounced dead today, Thursday 9th May 2019.”

“Investigating Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision or who may have information to contact New Ross Garda Station on 051-426030, the Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any Garda Station.”
