The family of a Brazilian woman, who was killed while cycling in Dublin last month, have called for safer roads.
A vigil was held last night at Dolphin’s Barn bridge where Josilaine Ribeiro was hit by a truck.

A message was read from her family urging the authorities to take action to keep road users safe according to the Irish Times.
Surveys carried out in the area this year found more than a hundred cars an hour were breaking the speed limit.
The vigil was organised by the Calm Crumlin Road campaign group, a local community group that is advocating for increased road safety measures and enforcement on the Crumlin Road and Dolphin’s Barn areas.
