Ah Jesus, that's awful news, if true. What a totally fucked up situation all around.

I really hope it's not true. It's poor form to start a story like that if unfounded though.

You've stated it's a rumour at this stage, so I think you're above board.

Pretty fûcked up if it is because everybody, and I mean nearly everybody, in the town my missus is from is talking about it. Tbf I shouldn't have posted it without evidence. Ah well.

If you want exemptions from property tax or help with your planning application, Willie O'Dea is your man but beyond that, Galway and Limerick has a very low quality of representation.


Jan O'Sullivan and Noonan were great for the city in the last Government (or second last I guess now), but Noonan is retiring and O'Sullivan might be retiring. I like Keiran O'Donnell and Patrick O'Donovan but I'm not sure either has anything close to a vision. Quinlivan hasn't done anything since being made a TD, but that was to be expected.


Jan going again.

I see a cyclist was killed in Rathfarnham yesterday.

That's 3 cyclists killed in the Terenure-Rathfarnham area in the last 3 months. Quite shocking.

That's dreadful but not surprising considering the massive increase in cyclist numbers over the past few years and the complete lack of roadcraft that many have.

A man in his 50s has died while cycling to work after a car was in collision with his bicycle in Rathfarnham, Dublin.
Padraic Carney (53) had left his house on Butterfield Close shortly after 8am yesterday morning and was cycling down Butterfield Park when his bike and a car collided at the junction with Butterfield Crescent.
Local residents and builders who were working on a house nearby rushed to his aid and and assisted as best they could until the emergency services arrived.

But Mr Carney, who was the popular principal of St Louis Senior Primary School in Rathmines, was brought by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
The circumstances of the crash are currently being investigated by gardai at Rathfarnham garda station. The incident is being treated as a tragic accident.

The elderly driver of the car involved was uninjured but shaken by the crash.

--- But yeah it was the cyclist :roll: .


I live very very close to there. The road is not a main road at all - I dont understand how a car could have been going fast enough to cause a fatality in the first place. As a cyclist this stuff is scary.

I think that's a pretty cruel and harsh statement there, bordering on "well they deserved it". Do you know anything of the accidents?

Depends how fast he was going tbf, not the car. Car could have cut him off or shot out from an intersection, or pulled too far out from a driveway. Happens all the times with some eijits looking the other way.

Ascribe it to the complete lack of roadcraft most Irish road users display frequently, and I'll buy what you're selling; otherwise - shitehawkery TSG.

Sad to say, but when I hear a news report which mentions 'elderly driver' I immediately apportion blame by default without hearing/reading anything else about the specifics of the accident, in much the same way as I do when I hear "18/19/20 year old driver" and/or "accident happened after 11PM..."

:blush:

The fact that his immediate reaction is to effectively say it was the cyclists fault is symptomatic of the real problem: road users attitudes towards cyclists.

I would go as far as saying its road users attitude towards each other period. Nothing to do with mode of transport.
The problem for cyclists (in ireland) is that they are made to share the road at the side and are a sort of after thought

Oh shove it up your ass. Where the fcuk did I say anything of the sort .
Commuting cyclists have increased in number by 40% in the greater Dublin area between censuses. That's quite a few more bikes on the road since 2011 and from my own experience, many have very little awareness when cycling. The City center is full of 'rent a bike' stands with people taking them out with no headgear, no experience and more often than not with their ear buds blasting out the latest one direction album.

Fcuk you you sanctimonious little prick.

TSG, you're the one going off on one about cyclists and what a danger they are to themselves, when you know nothing about who is to blame.

Oh and you forgot to mention motor tax, that's always a good one. Cyclist don't pay it dontyaknow.
