Josilaine ‘Josie’ Ribeiro (36) was killed in a crash with a truck driver while she was cycling on Monday afternoon in Dolphin’s Barn, Dublin

The woman killed in a crash with a truck driver while she was cycling in Dublin this week has been named as Josilaine Ribeiro. The 36-yeae-old Brazilian woman was working for the Home Instead company, which offers people care in their homes.

It is understood she was commuting during a day’s work when she was involved in the crash with the truck driver just after noon on Monday on Dolphin’s Barn Bridge.

Irandapontocom, a social media and news channel for foreign people living and working in Ireland, has paid tribute to her, saying she had “arrived in Ireland in May 2020 in pursuit of her dreams abroad”.

The deceased woman, known as ‘Josie’ to her friends, was 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, on Monday. Ms Ribeiro, 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 on Monday, 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.
