A man in his 40s died in hospital last night after a collision between his bicycle and a bus driver on a road between Kilshane Cross, Co Dublin and Dublin Airport.
Emma Farrelly at the Garda press office said: “Gardaí are investigating a fatal road traffic collision that occurred at Kilshane Cross, Newtown in Dublin 11 yesterday morning, Tuesday 4th May 2021 at approximately 7.20am.”
“A pedal cyclist and a bus were involved in the collision. The pedal cyclist, a male aged in his 40s, was seriously injured during the collision. He was taken to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown where he died yesterday evening,” she said.
The press office said that technical examination of the scene has now been completed by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.
She said: “Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this incident to come forward. Any road users who were travelling in the Newtown area from Kilshane Cross to Dublin Airport, between 7am and 8am yesterday morning, and who may have camera footage (including dash cam), is asked to make it available to Gardaí.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Finglas Garda Station on 01 666 7500, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda station.
Updated: Location was first reported as “at Kilshane Cross”. The article was updated to reflect that the collision didn’t happen at Kilshane Cross.
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
