...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...

“The cyclist, a man in his 40s, was taken to Beaumont Hospital with serious injuries. He has since been pronounced deceased. No other serious injuries to persons was reported. The Malahide Road at Kinsealy is currently closed and the services of Garda Forensic Collision Investigators have been requested. Local diversions are in place,” the spokesperson said.

Gardaí are seeking witnesses of the collision and anybody with dash cam footage to come forward along.

With camera footage, Gardaí are seeking any footage from road users who were travelling on the Malahide Road in the Kinsealy area between 9-9.30am.

Witnesses, those with footage, or anybody with information on the collection can contact Coolock Garda Station on 01 6664200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.

The Dublin Fire Brigade said: “The R107 is closed from Balgriffin cemetery to Baskin Lane following a road traffic collision.”
