A Kerry man who died in a road traffic collision is to be laid to rest today.

David Breen from Countess Grove, Killarney was hit by a car in Sussex while out cycling on October 26th. The 26-year-old was cycling home after playing a charity football match near his home in the UK.

A 34-year-old man, and a 34-year-old woman who were previously arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, have since been released pending further investigation.

The former student of IT Tralee has been described by all who knew him as a ‘lovely young man’.

His mother Anne said in a statement: “He will be greatly missed. He was funny, caring, ready with the banter, cheeky, lovable and always on the go. We met so many of his friends over the last week in England that showed so much compassion.”

A funeral mass will be held for the 26-year-old in St.Mary’s Cathedral.

He will be buried afterwards in Killarney Burial Ground, Knockeendubh.
