A MAN HAS died following a two-car crash in Balbriggan in the early hours of this morning. 

Gardaí are investigating the crash, which occurred on the M1 northbound in Balbriggan at 5.30am this morning. 

The man, whose age is not currently known, died after two cars collided near junction 6. He was pronounced dead at the scene and a post-mortem is expected to be carried out later.
