Two cyclists crash on Clontarf Road in north Dublin


A Garda investigation has begun after two cyclists were involved in a crash in Dublin on Sunday morning.

No vehicle was involved, with the two cyclists colliding with each other in Clontarf, north Dublin, at about 9.30am.

One of the cyclists suffered a head injury. The emergency services were called and the injured woman was treated at the scene.

She was then taken by ambulance to Beaumont Hospital. Furthermore, she was still undergoing treatment this evening.

The second cyclist involved in the crash does to appear to have been injured. She required no medical treatment to speak of.

Gardai said the incident occurred on Clontarf Road. It runs along the coast from Fairview out towards Sutton Cross and Howth.

It is a very popular route all year for cyclists. A new segregated bike lane has been installed on Clontarf Road in recent years.

The cause of this morning’s incident was not immediately clear. However, the investigation now underway will seek to determine exactly what happened.

“Gardai attended a road traffic collision on Sunday, September 23rd, at approximately 9.30am,” a Garda statement said.

“The incident, involving two cyclists, occurred on the Clontarf Rd. One of the female cyclists was taken to Beaumont Hospital with a head injury.

“The second female cyclist was uninjured. Investigations are ongoing.”

We wish well to the woman involved and hopefully she has a speedy and full recovery.
