Hit-and-run motorist knocks man in his 20s off bicycle in Dublin

A man in his 20s is in hospital with seriously injured after he was knocked off his bicycle when struck by a hit-and-run motorist on North Wall Quay in Dublin last night, according to Gardai.

Garda Sean Mac Seoin, at the Garda Press Office, said: “At approximately 10.30pm a male cyclist aged in his 20s was seriously injured when he was struck by a car on North Wall Quay. The car involved in the collision failed to remain at the scene. The injured cyclist was taken by Ambulance to the Mater Hospital where his condition is understood to be serious. The scene was examined by Garda forensic collision investigators and the road has since reopened to traffic.”

“A car understood to have been involved in the incident was recovered at Castleforbes Square a short time later by Gardaí. No arrests have been made to date and enquires are ongoing,” he said.

The Garda added: “Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and in particular to anyone who was in the area of the North Wall Quay, North Wall Avenue, East Wall Road, Sheriff Street Upper, Castleforbes Road or Castleforbes Square between 10.15pm and 10.30pm to come forward. They are also appealing to road users with camera footage (including dash-cam) from the area at the time to make it available to them.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room at Store Street Garda station 01 6668000 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com 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 IrishCycle.com 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.

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. This man died this morning, he was Thiago Cortes from Brazil and killed while delivering food. It’s reported a Ford Fiesta with no tax, insurance or NCT was involved and the 4 occupants fled on foot afterwards.
