Symbolic “Die-In” as part of Stop Killing Cyclists protest

A protest by people who ride bicycles took place outside the Oireachtas, Leinster House, last night (21st November 2017) in response to the 14th person so far this year who has died while cycling.

The death of 14 cyclists is a disturbingly high number, and a tragedy for their family and friends. The gathering – which was jointly organised by Dublin Cycling Campaign, Cyclist.ie, IBIKEDUBStayin Alive at 1.5, and Cycling Without Age – was a vigil to remember those who had died, and also a protest to demand action and funding for proper cycling infrastructure from the government.

A symbolic “die-in” formed part of the protest, with bicycle users lying on the road.
