A man has died after falling from his bicycle in Co Cork yesterday.
The 71- year-old was out cycling with a group of colleagues on the Castletownbere to Ardgroom Road when he came off his bicycle and struck the ground at around 4.40pm.
His colleagues administered CPR, until a local doctor attended the scene.
The doctor pronounced the man dead a short time later. His body was taken to Cork University Hospital where a post mortem will be carried out.
No one else was injured.
The road was closed to facilitate a Garda Forensic Collision examination and has now reopened.
