Hundreds of people attended a vigil at the Spire on Wednesday evening in memory of Thiago Cortes, a 28 year old Deliveroo driver who was killed in a hit-and-run. Those at the vigil said they were calling for safer roads for delivery drivers in Dublin and for those responsible for Mr Cortes death to be caught. Demonstrators said that many Deliveroo drivers are unrecognised immigrant workers who face dangerous road conditions. Tereza Dontas, Mr Cortes fiancée, was joined by friends, cyclists and Deliveroo drivers at the demonstration on O’Connell street.
