Man on bicycle dies in Co Cork collision

Gardaí have said that they are investigating a fatal collision, involving the death of a man in his 40s who was cycling, at approximately 6.20pm yesterday, Saturday, July 24, 2021.

This is reader-funded journalism, but it needs more support -- our target is 20 more subscribers by the end of August... can you help? Subscribe today.

Gardai are seeking witnesses or anybody who may have video footage to come forward.

“A male cyclist received treatment at the scene following the incident but he was later pronounced deceased. The body of the man, aged in his 40s, was taken Cork University Hospital where a post-mortem will now take place,” Garda press office said.

The scene remains closed this morning to allow for a technical examination, the statement from the Garda press office said.

The statement added: “Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information on this collision or anyone who may have video — including dash cam — footage to make this available to them. Gardaí can be contacted at Fermoy Garda Station on 025 82100 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.”

Hello Reader... 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. Some reports are stating that a car was involved wheres others are saying that it was a single vehicle collision. The garda report does not say. It is more likely that a car was not involved and that the single vehicle was the bicycle.
