A man in his 60s died last week after falling from his bicycle in Co Cork. Gardai understand the collision included no other vehicle other than the man’s bicycle, but are seeking witnesses.

“Gardaí are investigating a fatal road traffic incident involving a cyclist that occurred in Glenville, Co. Cork, on Sunday 25th October, 2020,” said Sean Mac Seoin at the Garda press office.

“At approximately 10.20am a male cyclist, aged in his 60s, was seriously injured after falling from his bike while cycling on the R614 at Ballybrack. He was taken by ambulance to Cork University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. It’s understood no other vehicle was involved in this incident,” he said.
