Man in his 50, who was cycling, seriously injured in collision with van

A man in his 50s, who was cycling, was seriously injured in a collision involving a van, according to Gardai

Gardai are appealing for witnesses to the incident which happened on the N25 at Holmestown, Co. Wexford yesterday, August 31, 2022.

Kyle Stewart, a spokesperson at the Garda Press Office said: “At approximately 5:45pm, Gardaí and emergency services were alerted to a collision involving a van and bicycle on the N25 at, Holmestown, Co. Wexford. The cyclist, a man in his 50s was taken to Wexford General Hospital to be treated for his injuries which are understood to be serious. No other injuries were reported.”

“The scene was preserved for a technical examination which has since concluded. The road was closed for a period but has since reopened,” said Stewart.

He added: “Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision to come forward. They are also appealing to road users who were travelling on the N25 in the Holmestown area between 5:30pm and 6:00pm with camera footage (including dash cam), to make it available to them.

Gardai are asking that anyone with information can contact Wexford Garda Station on 053 916 5200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

CLARIFICATION: This article’s original headline and first paragraph mentioned ‘van driver’ rather than just van. This has been changed to better reflect wider possibilities. But — as always — the reporting of a collision involving somebody does not and should not be seen as reporting on or assigning blame. is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

Subscription drive update: 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 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.

*** 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, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year 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
