Gardaí appeal for witnesses following the death of a cyclist in Kerry

Tragic news.

A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána confirmed that a cyclist who fell from his bike on 27 March died from his injuries yesterday.

Gardaí are now seeking witnesses who may have seen the incident.

Authorities were called to the scene shortly after 5pm on Wednesday, when a male cyclist was found lying on the road at Colkeragh on the R552 between Ballylongford and Listowel.

The injured man removed by helicopter to University Hospital Limerick where he was later pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday.

A post-mortem was conducted on Friday.

The Gardaí do not currently suspect that the incident was the result of a hit-and-run. The statement concludes by saying "Initial enquiries suggest the man may have fallen from his bicycle and sustained serious injuries. A hit and run is not suspected at this time."
