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?
The airport hill in Cork is mostly a 100kmp speed limit and there is no street lighting on the top 2km section where the incident occurred.
There is no footpath on the airport hill but it does have cycle lanes on both sides.
Why the Doctor (RIP) was walking up that hill at 5am is a mystery to me, by 4.30am in Cork on even the busiest nights, we (Taxi drivers) will have the streets hoovered clean of customers and there would have been plenty of Taxies available from 4.30am onwards.

100 kilos/hour is crazy for a road with no footpath or centre median. I wonder if tiredness was a factor given the driver's age and the hour of day?

Unless they can prove yer man was walking in the middle of the road they might charge the driver.Even if the limit was 200kmph we're supposed to be able to stop or swerve if something unexpected comes up in front of us.Not always easy though.

Visibility was very poor here early on Saturday evening (7,8 ish) - at 100 kilos/hour you'd have little chance if that's what it was like down there in the early hours, IMO.

Coolock or Ballymun - or you could just ring them. Unlikely that the Coolock constabulary will get up off their arses, maybe tell them there's a burger van playing for trade beside it or something?

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