Thiago Cortes

At 5pm.

A vigil for Brazil-born Thiago Cortes, a 28-year-old Deliveroo cyclist who was killed following a hit-and-run on the north Liffey quays on Monday night, will take place at The Spire, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1.

JEH writes:

I thought this  was worth sharing as it’s a genuine tragedy and there are at least a few active cyclists on here.

Thiago  had a wife and family, doing a job that so many people take for granted when they flip a few bob to the app for that delivery fee.

Cycling around at night, going to door-to-door to complete strangers during a global pandemic, all for a couple of beans per order.

I hope everyone can spare a thought for this poor fella next time they order delivery. There’s a cost greater than the 2.50 delivery charge.

Anyone?

This morning.

Cork 96FM’s journalist PJ Coogan spoke to Lucasz (above left) who is appealing for information about a hit-and-run incident in Cork on Sunday morning.

Lucasz told Mr Coogan that he was driving himself, his wife and mother-in-law to Cork Airport on Sunday morning at around 7.30am when they were hit by a silver Toyota RAF4 which didn’t remain at the scene.

They were hit while they were close to Cork’s Parnell Place Bus Station by Merchant’s Quay.

The driver of the SUV hit the front and back passenger doors of Lucasz’s car and also damaged the boot of the car. Such was the force, Lucasz’s car was pushed off the road.

Lucasz’s mother-in-law (top right) suffered bruising to her face and neck and a fractured collarbone.

His wife (not pictured) suffered cuts to her face from broken glass and a broken pelvis.

Lucasz told Mr Coogan he and his wife lost a baby boy just four days prior to the accident.

Anyone with information about the accident can contact 1800 666 111.
