Gardai did not respond directly to questions on the nature of the collision. Instead the Garda Press Office referred to a press release issued at 11.10am this morning which outlined that the man had passed away and that investigations ongoing.

In that press release, Margaret Flanagan 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 were serious. This man has since passed away. No other injuries were reported,” she said in a Garda press release.

The statement said that the scene was preserved for a technical examination which has since concluded.

Flanagan added: “Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision to come forward. They are 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 have asked that anybody with information are asked to contact Wexford Garda Station on 053 916 5200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
