Multiple breakdowns and collisions cause traffic chaos in Dublin

No one was seriously injured during the collision, which occurred on the M50 southbound between Junction 7 Lucan and Junction 9 at the Red Cow.

A six vehicle collision on the M50 has been cleared, but several breakdowns have caused delays throughout Dublin.

The six car crash took place early this morning on the M50 southbound between Junction 7 Lucan and Junction 9 at the Red Cow.

No one was seriously injured during the collision and it was "material damage" only to each of the vehicles.

However, delays have been prevalent throughout Dublin, particularly in the city centre, all morning as breakdowns occured near Grafton Street and on Wellington Quay.

Two cars also broke down on Con Colbert Rd and another vehicle broke down on the M50 Northbound at Junction 16 in Cherrywood.

A crash on Malahide Road approaching Fairview also blocked cars in both directions, but has since been cleared.

Meanwhile, AA Roadwatch have urged motorists to take extra caution on the roads today due to heavy rain.

According to the traffic experts, "Heavy rain is expected over south and east Leinster and in south Munster with up to 50mm anticipated in some parts. Rain will generally clear from Connacht and Munster by this afternoon but some heavy scattered showers will follow.

Slow down, stay a safe distance from the vehicle in front and only drive through flood water if you know it's not too deep for your car."
