The cyclist who was seriously injured when he was struck by a car in Dublin on Monday night has died.

Thiago Osorio Cortes (28), from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, was struck by a car at North Wall Quay at 10.30pm on Monday night.

Mr Cortes was taken by ambulance to the Mater hospital in serious condition, where he was later pronounced dead.

They are also appealing to road users with camera footage, such as a dash-cam, from the area at the time.
