    Limerick cyclist found in ditch died after suffering heart attack, inquest told

    A CYCLIST who was found critically injured at the side of the road earlier this year died from natural causes, a coroner has ruled.

Coroner John McNamara was told a PSV inspector found there was no damage to Mr Quinlan's bike and that his helmet was intact.
