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.
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.
