The incident occurred in heavy rush hour traffic, shortly after 6pm between Junction Six at Blanchardstown and Junction Five at Finglas on the M50.

An FAI spokesperson told the Irish Independent that five members of the Irish management team were involved in the collision with another vehicle.

"It was a minor collision and nobody was hurt. Both Roy and Martin have been looked at by the doctor in the team hotel and they are both fine," said the spokesperson.

"We will need to keep an eye on them to see if any symptoms appear within the next 48 hours, like you normally would.

"But we are very confident that everything is okay. They are a bit stiff and a bit shaken, but all is okay. We will have training as normal tomorrow."

The Irish squad aims to kick on from the 0-0 draw with England last weekend, for the crucial Euro 2016 qualifier with Scotland on Saturday evening.
