A fresh appeal for witnesses to a fatal hit-and-run incident in Dublin on Friday evening has been made.

A teenage boy, who was struck by a car in Cabra, died of his injuries at Temple Street Children's Hospital last night.

14-year-old Conor Hickey, from St Attracta's Road in Cabra, was struck by a car on the junction of St Eithne Road and Fassaugh Road at 5.40pm.

Gardaí say they believe a silver-coloured car was involved and they are appealing for the driver or any witnesses to the incident to come forward. The car may have had a spoiler.

Fassaugh Road was closed for a time between the Attractra Road junction and the roundabout on Fassaugh Avenue.
