A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána confirmed to there were two occupants in the car at the time of the incident, but neither were reported as injured.

He said: “The car lost control in the conditions there about 6:40 yesterday morning. No one injured or anything like that.

“There were two occupants. They went to hospital as a precaution but there were no injuries there,” he added.

The spokesperson also said there had been a plan by emergency services to remove the car on Monday night due to traffic at the Red Cow up to that stage.

He explained: “It wasn’t causing any disturbance or disruption so they left it until yesterday evening to take it out until things got quieter.”
