Commuters are warned to expect delays on the roads this morning as traffic pours into the city after the Bank Holiday weekend.

AA Roadwatch urged road users to prepare for delays on the M1 northbound at J2 after an earlier obstruction blocked the right lane. The obstruction has since been cleared.

Take care on the M50 northbound as there are reports of debris on the M50 northbound at J12 Firhouse.

There are also inbound delays on the N7 Naas Road between the Newlands Cross Flyover and the Red Cow Interchange.

Motorists should take care as traffic is slow along the Grand Canal eastbound from Clogher Road to Harold's Cross.

Meanwhile in Cork, the N28 Ringaskiddy Road is busy southbound from after Carrs Hill to the Shannonpark R/A.

Irish Rail said there are delays of up to 15 minutes on all north and southbound services through Connolly at present due to earlier mechanical fault.

The 08.37 Dun Laoghaire to Connolly has been cancelled due to the mechanical fault.

Bus Eireann services are running as normal as bus drivers have returned to work after an all-out strike.

On the Old Airport Road Dublin Fire Brigade have dealt with tyres and rubbish on fire which produced thick smoke in the area.
