A motorcyclist has been killed after an early morning collision in Co Dublin today.

The man, aged in his 30s, was travelling on Terenure Road East when his motorcycle struck a wall at the junction of Ferrard Road.

The motorcyclist was treated at the scene by emergency service crews but he died a short time later.

His body was removed to Dublin City Morgue.

The road was closed to facilitate a forensic examination of the scene and traffic was diverted. The road was re-opened later.

Gardai have appealed for witnesses to contact them at Terenure garda station on 01 6666400 or any garda station.
