GARDAÍ IN DUN Laoghaire are investigating the death of a cyclist in Dalkey earlier this week.

At about 8.45pm on Friday, 28 September, a 54-year-old cyclist was found in a collapsed but conscious state on the Barnhill Road in Dalkey.

A witness discovered the man close to the Avondale Road roundabout and emergency services were called. The victim was treated at the scene by an ambulance crew before being taken to St Vincent’s Hospital. While there, his condition deteriorated and he was pronounced dead on Monday, 1 October.

The deceased has been described as clean shaven, of thin build and about 5′ 9″ or 5′ 10″ tall with short brown-grey hair. He was wearing grey bottoms, a dark woolly jumper, blue jacket and navy Converse runners at the time of the incident.
