GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are renewing their appeal for information over a fatal hit-and-run collision in February 2009. 

38-year-old Edward Lynch was walking on Claddagh Road, Ballyfermot sometime between 8pm and 9pm on Sunday 22 February 2009. 

He had just left a vehicle on Claddagh Road and was walking towards another vehicle, which was at the junction of Claddagh Road and Claddagh Green, when he was struck by a Nissan Micra. 

The car, with a 98-D registration, had driven from Inagh Road. 

Lynch got into a car and followed the Micra up to Ballyfermot Road. Here, an altercation took place between the occupants before they went their separate ways. 

He returned home and complained of feeling unwell. He was then found dead at his home on the morning of 25 February 2009.
