GOOD MORNING AND welcome to Tuesday’s liveblog.

We’ll be with you until just after 9am as another working day gets underway. Stick with us for all the latest traffic, travel and weather updates from across the country.

Why hello there, reader.

Catherine Healy here on TheJournal.ie’s commuting liveblog, bringing you the latest traffic, transport and weather updates.

Spotted something we should know about? Email catherine@thejournal.ie or tweet me @Chealy_.

Not while driving, of course.

Let’s take a look at the weather forecast.

Met Éireann says the morning will be cold and mostly dry, with fog patches clearing quickly as dawn breaks. Highest temperatures today will be between 10 to 12 degrees.

The sky looks nice and bright here in Dublin from our office window, at least:


The M50 is moving well at most exits, but traffic is building at Lucan – as you can see from Dublin City Council’s traffic camera.


There’s been a collision just after the M1/M50 junction on approach to the Port Tunnel:

Expect inbound delays.


Traffic is busy in Cork along Merchant’s Quay and Lower Glanmire Rd, as well as approaching the Dunkettle Interchange heading into the city.


The M1 crash has now been moved:

From a reader on Dublin Bus this morning:

On the bus on the M1 now. Traffic is fine going into the M50 and the Malahide slipway. Very slow heading to the Port Tunnel.

Thanks for the tip, Alan.

The two vehicles involved in that M1 collision have been cleared, but delays remain on that stretch of the road:

Meanwhile, in East Wall:

There’s been another collision on the M1, this time further north near J4 Donabate:

And a crash has been reported on the N25 in Cork:

The latest on that second M1 crash:

That’s all from us, folks. Have a good day and see you back here tomorrow, hopefully.
