Tributes have been paid to a cyclist from Northern Ireland who was killed in a weekend collision with a van in Co Donegal.

Adrian Mullan, from Amelia Court in Londonderry's Ballyarnett area, was one of two cyclists caught in the accident at 9.15am on Saturday at Moneydarragh, between Redcastle and Gleneely.

The other rider, whose injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital. A van driver was treated for shock.

Foyle Cycling Club and the North Pole Cycling Club cancelled events as a mark of respect to Mr Mullan (43), who was training when tragedy struck.

Foyle Cycling Club chairman Simon Gill said: "Foyle CC is numb with shock and devastated at the loss. He was a true gentleman who will be sorely missed. He organised a charity ride of two laps of the Inishowen 100. He also did a London-Paris ride in aid of the Foyle Hospice.

"The club sends its sincere condolences to his wife, Patricia, children, Gemma, Rachael and Joshua, and family and friends."

The funeral is expected to be held at St Brigid's Church in Carnhill on Wednesday.
