...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.

The Garda press office said: “Today, Friday 6th November 2020, Gardaí arrested a male (aged in his teens) in relation to a fatal road traffic collision that occurred in the North Wall Quay area of Dublin City on the 31st August 2020.”

The Garda statement added: “He is currently detained in Store Street Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984. Investigations are ongoing.”

...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.
