...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 female was taken from the scene to the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, to be treated for injuries believed to be serious at this time. A male received injuries believed to be non-life-threatening,” said.

The road is currently closed and local diversions are in place said in a press release issued this afternoon.

Gardaí said that they are appealing to anyone with information or who may have witnessed this collision to contact them.

The Garda Press Office added: “Any road users or pedestrians who may have camera footage (including dash-cam), and were travelling in the area of Botanic Road or Iona Road, Glasnevin, Dublin this morning between 9am and 10:30am, is asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Mountjoy Garda Station on 01 666 8600, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.

...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.
