Watched the darts myself. If it was that quiet you shoulda gone the other way. I was inundated with mytaxi offers in Drogheda last Sat night, well Sun morning to be pedantic. I didn't take any because it was after 02:00 so the bonus had ceased.

I was half thinking of trying days in Drogheda in the new year but I was up there yesterday and the traffic was atrocious, every bit as bad as up above in Dublin and, as I don't have a Loud licence, I wouldn't be able to use the official ranks so would be largely relying on mytaxi for work.

Just thought it might be satisfying to steal some work from those Loud men who dispatched all their immigrant drivers up to Dublin... not to mention the hundreds of country licensed drivers who work for mytaxi up above in Dublin.

A 33-year-old man who was seriously injured in a road traffic accident in the village of Hospital in Co Limerick earlier this week has died.

Patryk Kacprowicz, a father of two who lived in Hospital for a number of years, was struck by a van on the main street in the village shortly after 5pm last Wednesday.

He was being treated for serious injuries at University Hospital Limerick, but died earlier today.

Gardaí at Bruff in Limerick are investing the collision and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

TOP DOC DIES Cabbie quizzed by gardai after top psychiatrist Dr Martin Lawlor dies in Cork hit-and-run

A CABBIE is being quizzed by cops after a top psychiatrist died in a hit and run in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The collision happened in bad weather conditions on the N27 Airport Road on the outskirts of Cork city shortly after 5.30am.

Dr Martin Lawlor, 49, originally from Millstreet, Co Cork was employed by the HSE. He was highly respected in medical circles both in Ireland and the UK.

It’s understood he was walking towards Cork Airport where he was staying at a hotel when he was struck by a taxi which failed to stop at the scene.

The doctor had been due to catch a flight home to England, where his wife and children live.

Later at a garda checkpoint, cops noticed a taxi with a damaged windscreen and spoke to the driver about the earlier incident.

The driver, aged in his 60s, was arrested and taken to Togher Garda Station for questioning under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

The services of the State Pathologist’s office were requested and Dr Michael Curtis carried out a postmortem in Cork University Hospital yesterday.

Dr Lawlor was the programme lead and medical director of State of Mind Ireland which deals with mental illness in sport.

Old codger in his 60s, bad weather conditions, early hours of the morning. I wonder what speed the taxi was travelling at to kill the man?

So it’s 75/25% serious accidents outside Dublin but it’s now 66/33% of fatalities outside The Pale.

I think he would have been safer in a taxi headin to the airport at that hour and in those weather conditions.
