The man was cycling in the Ringsend area when a witness said he was "wiped out by a car turning left".

The man received very bad head injuries but the witness also added that the cyclist was not wearing a helmet.

The incident took place on the South Lotts Road just before 10:30am and firefighters and paramedics were on the scene immediately. 

The cyclist was treated on scene and transported to hospital on arrival.

This was only one of three reports of cyclists being injured in the capital yesterday.

Another eye witness saw a cyclist being put into an ambulance after an incident at the North Quays.

While reports also stated that a female cyclist had fallen off her bicycle on the Clonskeagh Road near Charles Hurst garage.

Gardaí confirmed that they did not have any information regarding the incidents at the North Quay or on Clonskeagh Road.
