A man who was seriously injured in a hit and run collision in Dublin last December was pronounced dead on Friday at Beaumont Hospital.

The local coroner has been notified and a post-mortem examination is to take place tomorrow morning.

The 27-year-old man was injured on the R127, Skerries to Loughshinny Road, Co Dublin, in the early hours of Tuesday, 27 December 2016.
