The collision occurred around 8.30am when a red Fiat 500 car collided with a pedestrian and a child on a bike, both of whom were using a pelican crossing.
Mr Taylor sadly died at the scene.
The five-year-old boy riding the bike suffered a broken leg and has since been released from hospital to recover. They weren’t together.
The driver of the car, a 30-year-old local woman, suffered minor injuries.
Police are continuing to investigate.
Anyone who has information about the collision is asked to contact police online or by ringing 101 quoting Operation Rosslare.
