Man in his 30s hospitalised with serious injuries after collision in Castebar

A man in his 30s was hospitalised with serious injuries following a collision in Castlebar on Sunday night around 10pm.

The Garda Press Office said: “Gardaí are investigating a road traffic collision involving a bicycle that occurred in Springfield, Castlebar, Co. Mayo [on] Sunday 26th February 2023.”

...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 added: “The cyclist, a male in his 30s, was removed to Mayo University Hospital for treatment of his injuries, which are believed to be serious. Enquiries are ongoing.”

Witteness or anybody with camera footage can contact Castlebar Garda Station on (094) 903 8200.

At least two local media reports outlined how the incident also involved a ‘motorist’ or ‘car’, but this could not be confirmed at the time of publication of this article and it is understood that Gardai believe that was a bicycle-only collision.


...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.
