A cyclist has been seriously injured in a collision with a bus in Dublin.

The 55-year-old woman was cycling on Burlington Road at 9.40pm last night when the collision happened.

The woman suffered a head injury and was knocked unconscious. She was taken by ambulance to St Vincent's Hospital and remained in serious condition today.

The scene of the incident was examined by garda forensic collision investigators.

A spokeswoman for Dublin Bus said there were no passengers on the No. 39 bus when the collision occurred.

"Gardai have requested CCTV footage from the bus and we will be supplying that to them today," she said.


An internal investigation by Dublin Bus staff was also underway, she said.

Gardai appealed today for witnesses to contact them at Donnybrook garda station on Station 01-6669200 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.

The crash happened near Four Mile House.

Three young men who were travelling with him in the car were injured.

Mr McGlynn was a footballer for the local St Barry's GAA club.
