...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'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. Now, back to the article...

“The cyclist and the van were both travelling from the Trim direction towards the Navan Direction. The cyclist was taken to Connolly hospital with serious injuries and remains in a critical condition,” said Gardai.

They added: “Gardai are appealing for witnesses to contact Trim Garda Station on 046 94 81540 and anyone who may have dashcam footage.”

Navan Cycling Initiative said: “A person on a bike has been left in critical condition after an incident just outside Trim yesterday. We hope this person makes a full recovery. Any witnesses please contact Trim Garda Station.”

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *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's journalism open to all. Thank you.
