Woman on bicycle injured in collision with taxi driver on Dublin’s quays

A woman cycling a bicycle was injured in a collision with taxi driver outside the Spencer Hotel on Dublin’s North Wall Quay at around 8am this morning.

This is reader-funded journalism, but it needs more support -- our target is 20 more subscribers by the end of August... can you help? Subscribe today.

A spokesman at the Garda press office said: “Gardaí in Store Street responded to a report of a traffic collision between a cyclist and car that occurred on North Wall Quay at approximately 7.59am today, 8 November.”

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com 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 IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com 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 ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers

  1. I don’t know the details in this case, but I’ve nearly been hit several times by taxis ‘diving’ into the footpath to grab a fare without looking properly for inside traffic. I hope she recovers soon.

  2. I hope AA Roadwatch’s obnoxious anti-cyclist Connor Faughnan doesn’t forget to add this incident to his dubious-sounding “Statistics” that he asserts prove there are less cyclists being hurt on our roads. There are lies, damned lies and (Connor Faughnan’s ) statistics.
