Bernard Tully, cyclist who died after colliding with a pedestrian in Phoenix Park Bernard Tully, cyclist who died after colliding with a pedestrian in Phoenix Park The collision occurred at 8.50pm on a cycle path off Chesterfield Avenue, the inquest heard.

Witness Derek Brennan was out walking on the pedestrian path with his wife when he heard a bang.

“I saw someone in a yellow jacket projected into the air,” he said.

He saw another man lying injured on the grass verge. He called emergency services.

Mr Tully was rushed to Beaumont Hospital where he was pronounced dead two days later on May 4.

The cause of death was head injuries due to a cycling collision.

The pedestrian, a software engineer, was crossing the cycle lane from the pedestrian lane in order to exit the park.

“I started to cross over. I don’t remember a collision... the only memory I have is lying on the ground,” he said.

Collisions between cyclists and pedestrians in the Phoenix Park are common, Detective Inspector Peter Hayde told the court. The cycle lane is the outer lane running next to the road while the pedestrian lane is a separate path running inside and parallel.

Gardai recommended that the cycle and pedestrian paths be swapped in the interest of public safety.

“There have been other accidents. At the zoo for example, families place their children in immediate danger by stopping their cars and alighting onto the cycle path,” D.I. Hayde said.

Returning a verdict of accidental death, the jury recommended that the Office of Public Works and the Road Safety Authority be made aware of the issues raised.

Coroner Dr Myra Cullinane commended the family’s "generous gesture" to donate Mr Tully’s organs and said would notify the relevant authorities in the interest of public safety.
