Appeal for information as cyclist injured

A Ballyshannon cyclist is being treated for injuries after he was thrown from his bike by a length of bull wire stretched across a track on which he was cycling on Wednesday night last.

The man, a member of the Bally Boys Cycling Club, was training for a charity event when the incident occurred.

The club says the man was hit across the shoulder and chest by the wore, had he been a little shorter, it could have been a very different story.


Gardai are investigating, and Bally Boys Spokesperson Gabriel Tinomey is urging anyone with information to come forward.



The single vehicle collision happened in the remote area of Cloon, near Carrigans, yesterday morning.
