Five-car crash on M50

THERe was traffic chaos on the M50 in Dublin last night, after a major pile-up.

The collision, which involved five cars, occurred in the northbound lane on the motorway, close to the Firhouse exit, at around 6pm last night.

There were traffic delays in the area afterwards as emergency services attended the scene. However, it is understood that there were no serious injuries sustained in the incident.

New N5 bypass

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will have an extra reason to smile when he opens the country's newest road tomorrow.

The new Ballaghaderreen bypass will mean that he will be able to make the 236km journey from his office in Dublin to his home in Castlebar more quickly than ever. The 13.6km bypass will remove a major bottleneck for motorists on the N5, and ease pressure on traffic between Dublin, Castlebar and Westport.

Hope for missing man

THE family of a missing Dublin man have renewed hope of finding him after a possible sighting was reported to gardai.

Thomas Kennedy's family have revealed that a taxi driver who was away on holidays for the past three weeks told gardai that he believes he picked the 81-year-old up on July 29, the night he went missing.

The driver said that he picked a man up shortly after midnight that night, and drove him to Baldoyle.

"He may or may not be my father, but we hope it was - as it will have been the first true sighting," his son Vincent said.

The missing pensioner is 5'3'' with a slim build and short grey hair.
