GOOD MORNING AND welcome to a brand new week.

We’ll be with you until after 9am as another working day gets underway.

Stick with us for all the latest traffic, travel and weather updates from across the country.

Good morning, folks.

Catherine Healy here on’s commuting liveblog, helping you get to where you need to go.

Spotted something we should know about? Email, or tweet me @Chealy_.

Not while driving, obviously.

The morning will be foggy and cloudy in most parts of the country, with outbreaks of rain in the northeast, east and southeast.

Here’s the bright and cheerful view from our office in Dublin:


Highest temperatures will be between 10 to 14 degrees, according to Met Éireann.

If you use Dublin Bus, remember that the Hawkins St stop for routes 15, 27, 27x and 151 has been pushed south to facilitate Luas works.

The Pearse St stop for the 49, 54a and 84x has also been moved, in this case to College St.

It’s also busy on the N11 in Wicklow:

Traffic looks set to slow even further on the N11 following a reported collision there:

Cork is slow along the city quays and further north approaching the Dunkettle Interchange.


In Galway, meanwhile, traffic is building on Headford Rd and Tuam Rd.


Expect traffic to get even heavier approaching Cork’s Dunkettle Interchange:

Traffic signals are out of action at the bridge on Londonbridge Rd in Sandymount, according to Dublin City Council. A technician is en route, but be careful on approach.

That fog looks set to lift – if you’re in the midlands.

There’s been a collision on the Ringaskiddy Rd in Cork:

A breakdown has also been reported in Cork at the Tivoli flyover on the Lower Glanmire Rd inbound, according to AA Roadwatch.

Look out for the fuel spill on the N11 in Dublin:

That’s all from me for today. I’ll be back here at the same time tomorrow, so do join me then.

Have an excellent Monday.
