GARDAÍ IN CLONTARF arrested a man in his twenties in connection with a hit-and-run incident last week which left a 62-year-old cyclist dead.

The man was held at Clontarf Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. He has since been released without charge.

A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Eyewitnesses described the car as a silver Volkswagen Golf.

A similar car was recovered a short time later in Marino, and was seized for a forensic examination.
