Commuters travelling this morning are facing a headache as two early morning collisions are causing delays on the M50.

AA Roadwatch is reporting that there is a collision at the bottom of the slip road from the N7 Naas Rd inbound to the M50 southbound that is blocking the right lane.

On the M50 itself, traffic is down to one lane southbound before J9 Red Cow as emergency services deal with a crash. This is causing delays on approach from J4 Ballymun.

It's also heavy northbound on approach from J12 Firhouse due to onlookers.

Meanwhile, there was a third collision on the M4 Sligo/Dublin Rd eastbound at J7 Maynooth. The incident has been cleared but traffic remains very slow from J8 Kilcock.

It's also quite heavy further along on the N4 from J5 Leixlip through the M50.

In Dublin city, the Grand Canal is busy eastbound from Harold's Cross to Portobello and again at Leeson Street.

AA Roadwatch said that it is also slow heading into the city from the Malahide Rd junction in Fairview to Connolly Station on Amiens St.

There are also delays along the North Quays from Arran Quay to Bachelors Walk.
