A MOTORCYCLIST died in a collision shortly after leaving a Mass to remember bikers who lost their lives on the roads.

It is understood the man had just attended the annual 'Gone But Not Forgotten' Mass for bikers at the Sacred Heart Church in Clones, Co Monaghan.

His bike was involved in a collision with a car on the N54 Clones Road, 2km west of Smithboro, shortly after 9pm.

Two occupants of the car are understood to have sustained only slight injuries.

The road was closed for a technical examination last night.
