WATCH: Frightening footage shows near head on collision between cyclist and lorry on rural Irish road

Shocking footage shows a cyclist almost hit head on by a lorry on a rural road in Co Donegal.

The footage was uploaded by Irish cycling website, The Sticky Bottle, and it shows three cyclists on a rural road.

As they cycle, an oncoming lorry crosses into their lane and narrowly avoids ploughing into the cyclist.

He came within inches of the lorry which appeared to cross the white line.

The cyclist filmed the footage via a camera on his handlebars at 9.45am on Friday morning.

The cyclist involved said he was cycling in the middle of the lane because there was a beginner cyclist beside him.

He can be seen wobbling on his bike and very nearly loses his balance soon after the lorry passes.
