The man who died after being struck by a 4x4 in Monasterevin last Thursday evening has been identified locally as a Polish national.

Marcin Kozan, who was in his 40s, lived in Portarlington, and is not believed to have had immediate family living in Ireland.

Kildare gardai have renewed their appeal for witnesses to and dash camera footage of the fatal incident.

The collision happened while the man was crossing the Dublin Road, between Fitzpatrick’s Garage and the Nag’s Head pub, shortly before 7pm.

The driver of the 4x4 was uninjured.

A source said that the incident happened while Mr Kozan was trying to cross the road.
