Almost €11,000 has been raised to repatriate the body of a Polish man who worked in Ireland after he was killed on the road.

Friends of Mariusz Kryszak, who died on Sunday, June 2, after a car collided with his bicycle, have established the GoFundMe page to assist in transporting his remains home.

In tribute, a friend wrote: "Mariusz tragically passed away on Sunday, June 2. He was our friend and our colleague. We, his colleagues, ask you to please help us support our friend on his final journey home. The funds will be used to help his daughter Sandra and the Kryszak family repatriate their loved one back to Poland."

Mr Kryszak had worked for the Dunloe Hotel and Gardens in Killarney, Co Kerry, for 15 years.

He died after the traffic incident on a road in the popular tourist spot of the Gap of Dunloe.

One friend who donated to the fund said Mr Kryszak had been "a true gentleman and a good friend".

Anyone with information about the collision should contact Killarney Garda station on 064 667 1160 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
