A Dublin cyclist who was helped by a good Samaritan yesterday when she fell off her bike has begun a search for her knight in shining armour.
Orla Doogue (25) from Dollymount, Clontarf was cycling to work yesterday on the Clontarf Road in north Dublin when she fell off her bike. The bikes tyres were both punctured in the fall.
A man named Conor was one of two people who came to her rescue after the accident, and he drove her around the area to try and find the nearest cycling shop.
Ms Doogue now wants to find Conor to reward him with a present.
She won a family pass to Waterford crystal as a spot prize in a Bike to Work day lunchtime cycle yesterday, and now she wishes to pass this on to Conor.
“He was really, really nice. I went to work and did the lunchtime cycle and I ended up winning a spot prize. It’s a family pass to Waterford crystal, which includes lunch and museum tour as well.”
“All I know about this man is that his name was Conor and he drove a Toyota Avensis estate in navy blue.”
“There was a child seat in the back of the car and a child’s pink scooter in the boot.”
“I am desperate to find Conor! I have posted as much as I know about him on cycling pages on Facebook and I am hopeful I will track him down.”
“As a gesture of good will and appreciation I would like to pass my prize to this man. I would not have earned it if it wasn’t for him. I am so appreciative of what he did for me by going to extra mile. I hope I can track him down now.”
