GARDAI are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in Ballyfermot on Monday afternoon.
Gardai and emergency services attended the scene of a fatal road traffic collision on the Killeen Road in Ballyfermot this afternoon, Monday, December 27.
According to a Garda statement issued this evening, the collision occurred shortly before 1pm, when a car and bicycle collided.

“His body was taken to Dublin City Morgue where a post-mortem will now take place in due course.
