Traffic on and around the M50 is largely back to normal after earlier chaos.

Major delays occurred on the M50 and surrounding routes after several incidents this morning, including a bus broken down on the slip road from Lucan and a collision southbound between Junctions 13 and 14.

The worst of the delays were between the M1 junction and junctions southbound, with traffic queuing up along the M1 also, with a knock-on effect as motorists seek alternative routes.

Motorists were warned to drive with care after a collision southbound between junctions 13 and 14.

Separately, a bus broke down on the M50, at junction 7 south. 

Meanwhile, there were long delays for Dart and Northern commuter line passengers this morning after a signalling problem at Howth Junction, which has since been repaired.

Meanwhile, traffic is again building on approach roads to the National Ploughing Championships in Ratheniska, Co Laois, with gardaí pleading with motorists not to use Google Maps or Sat Navs and to follow their directions and local signage instead.

Transport for Ireland has warned of delays on the M7 in Portlaoise, at junctions 17 and 18. There are also delays on the M6 at junctions 5 Tullamore and 7 .
