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.”

Updated: Location was first reported as “at Kilshane Cross”. The article was updated to reflect that the collision didn’t happen at Kilshane Cross.
