Motorcyclist Who Crashed On N24 Last Week Looses Fight For Life.

Sadly, a motorcyclist, who was involved in a collision with a motor vehicle, here in Co Tipperary, earlier last week, (on December 28th last), has passed away in hospital.

The crash happened on the N24 in the towns-land of Kilshane, Co. Tipperary, at approximately 12.20pm.

Gardaí confirmed this evening, that the motorcyclist; a man as yet unnamed and aged in his 50s, has been pronounced dead at Cork University Hospital.
A male teenage pillion passenger on the motorcycle was also hospitalised, but with, thankfully, no known life threatening injuries.

The Coroner has been informed and a post-mortem examination is expected to be arranged in the coming days.

The crash scene on the main road between Tipperary and Cahir had already been examined by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators. However, Gardaí are once again appealing for witnesses to this collision. Persons who may have dash-cam footage, are being asked to make same available to investigating officers.

Those who may have information are being asked to contact Tipperary Town Garda Station Tel. No: 062-80670, the Garda Confidential Line Tel. No: 1800 666 111, or indeed any Garda Station.
