Ms Moriarty, who was in her 40s and from Tralee, died in Kerry General Hospital (KGH) last night from injuries sustained when she was involved in a collision with a car in Rathass in the town on Wednesday night.

The accident occurred near the entrance to the hospital where Ms Moriarty was taken in a serious condition.

It is understood Ms Moriarty had been on her way to visit a relation in nearby Marion Park when the accident occurred.

She had decided to cycle rather than drive because her car had been due to be tested for a National Car Test (NCT) certificate.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses to contact Tralee Garda Station on 066- 7102300, the Garda Confidential Line 1-800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
