Commuters travelling for the Bank Holiday this evening are facing a headache as there are three collisions in Dublin.

AA Roadwatch is reporting a crash on the Long Mile Road outbound at the Walkinstown Ave junction, blocking the bus lane and partially blocking the left lane. Further along on this route, the N7 Naas Rd is slow both ways between the Red Cow Interchange and the Green Isle.

There is also a collision on the M50 flyover at J4 Ballymun, partially blocking inbound traffic towards Ballymun Road.

A third collision is reported to be on Tolka Valley Road at the Finglas Road junction.

Meanwhile, traffic is very slow on the M50 southbound from the M1 Interchange to J6 Blanchardstown and then further south, from J13 Ballinteer all the way to J5 Bray North on the M11. Northbound, it’s heavy from J13 Sandyford past J9 Red Cow and again from J4 Ballymun to the M1 interchange.

It's also heavy outbound on the Chapelizod Bypass from before the Kylemore Rd slip through to The Oval in Palmerstown. Further along, it's slow leaving Dublin on the N4 Sligo Rd from the M50 right out to J5 Leixlip.

In Galway, there is debris in the right lane of the M6 Dublin/Galway Rd westbound between J15 Ballinasloe West and J16 Loughrea and care is advised along that stretch.
