...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com'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...

A Garda spokesperson said: “Gardaí at Dunshaughlin are investigating a hit and run incident which occurred on Thursday afternoon, December 8th on the L2214, Kilcloone to Maynooth road.”

“At approximately 1.20pm, a male cyclist was knocked off his bicycle by a vehicle which failed to remain at the scene. The incident resulted in the cyclist suffering several serious injuries,” they said.

The spokesperson said: “Anyone who may have been on the L2214 Kilgraigue, Kilcloon to Maynooth road and witnessed the incident or anyone who may have dash cam footage of the area during this time are asked to please contact Dunshaughlin Garda Station on 01-8258600, Ashbourne Garda Station on 01-8010600 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.

Gardai added: “Gardaí in particular are appealing to the person who aided this male to please come forward to assist with this investigation.”

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