A cyclist has been killed in Dublin after a crash with a driver in a truck on Monday afternoon. The victim is the sixth cyclist to be killed on the roads of the Republic this year.

Gardaí said they attended the scene of the fatal road traffic collision at approximately 12:30pm on the Dolphin’s Barn Bridge in Dublin 8. The cyclist, who was riding an e-bike, was taken to St James’s Hospital with serious injuries and they were later pronounced deceased.

“The Dolphin’s Barn Bridge was closed for a time in order for a technical examination to be conducted by Forensic Collision Investigators. The road has since reopened,” the Garda said in a statement, adding they were appealing for any witnesses to the collision to come forward.

“Any road users who may have camera footage – including dash-cam – and were travelling in the Dolphin’s Barn Bridge area between 12:15pm and 12:45pm are asked to make this footage available to gardaí,” said a statement.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crumlin Garda station on (01) 666 6200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda station.
