Ghost Bike in Memory of Karl.
A new Ghost Bike was Erected on Astons Quay beside the Merchants Arch just across the Road from the Halfpenny Bridge in Dublin Today. In Memory of the Newest Victim to be Killed by a HGV by The Dublin Cycle Campaign Group. He is Karl Magee a 51 Year Old Cyclist on His Commute and He was Knocked down and Killed by an Articulated 40Ft Truck on 15 th September last. It was attended by Members of his Family and Cyclists and an Oration was made by a Family member and one of the Cyclists and Flowers was placed on the Bike. These Trucks are supposed to be Banned from going through the City since they put in the Port Tunnel save for a few who are given Permission to Deliver to the big Shops. Another Testament to the bad Infrastructure or lack thereoff. How many more are going to get Killed before things are improved for Cyclists. My deepest Sympathies to the Family of Karl may he Rest in Peace.
