Road closures for 'Flugtag'

MOTORISTS are being warned of road closures and traffic restrictions in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, this weekend as a wacky flying competition takes place.

The Red Bull 'Flugtag', run by the energy drinks company, will see competitors try to fly homemade flying machines using only human power. This year the event takes place at Dun Laoghaire Harbour on Sunday from midday until 4.30pm.

During the competition Queens Road will be closed to west-bound traffic from Sandycove between Park Road and Marine Road, while access to Mellifont Avenue from George's Street will be closed and traffic diverted via Park Road.
