Man in his 60s on bicycle injured in collision with truck driver

A man in his 60s was injured in a collision with a truck driver this evening at around 6pm on the Newcastle Road, Lucan.

“This was a road traffic collision between a truck and pedal cyclist.  The male pedal cyclist — in his early 60s — received nonlife threatening injuries and was taken to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown,” said Sergeant Margaret Flanagan at the Garda press office.

...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 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...

Gardai said that investigations are ongoing.

An image on twitter shows that the truck was a cement truck.

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


  1. I was very narrowly missed by a huge Cement Truck this morning in Feltrim, North Co Dublin, near the quarry. I think sometimes such truck drivers forget they are not off road when venturing off site.
