A black Volvo was seized in Coolock in Dublin following the collision which happened on the Strand Road in Baldoyle shortly before 1am on Saturday.

No arrests have yet been made but gardaí say they're following a definite line of inquiry.

The Volvo is believed to have overtaken a line of traffic before striking the 26-year-old cyclist.

The injured man was rushed to Beaumont Hospital with leg injuries. He is said to be making good progress having suffered a broken leg.

The victim, a foreign national, has been working as a porter in a Dublin hotel and is understood to be studying English since moving to the capital a number of months ago.

Meanwhile, a female motorcyclist in her 40s has died following a single-vehicle collision on the M9 in Kildare.

The woman was travelling between junction one and two, near Kilcullen, when she collided with the central divide at around 8.30pm on Saturday. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Gardai have appealed for any witnesses to contact them at Kildare on 045 527730.
