A pensioner out walking on the N24 Limerick to Waterford road, at Glenconnor Upper, outside Clonmellon, Co. Tipperary, remains fighting for his life following a collision with a cyclist.

We understand the male pedestrian; latter aged in his mid-70’s and a local resident of the area, suffered serious injuries yesterday evening, January 6th, at around 6.35pm.

We understand the victim was removed to South Tipperary General Hospital suffering from serious head injuries.

Garda forensic collision investigators have since carried out a technical examination at the scene, however the true circumstances of the accident remain unclear.
