GOOD MORNING AND welcome to Tuesday’s liveblog.

We’ll be with you until just after 9am this morning, bringing you the latest traffic, travel and weather updates from across the country.

Hello there, everyone.

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

Not while driving, obviously.

First things first: the weather. Met Éireann says the morning will be very foggy in many areas. Rain will be concentrated in the west and north, with bright and sunny spells elsewhere. Highest temperatures will be between 11 to 14 degrees.

This was the glorious view from our offices in Dublin just before 7am:


If you’re driving somewhere this morning, give yourself some extra time to get through that fog.

It’s pretty foggy on the M50 at Lucan as well – just look at Dublin City Council’s traffic camera there:


There are reports now of two separate crashes in Dublin. Expect some days on the N4 and Ballinteer Road.

Taking the Waterford-Heuston train?

The Grand Canal in Dublin is quite busy eastbound from Dolphin’s Barn to Leeson Street.


The latest from Cork:

There’s been a breakdown on the North Circular Road in Phibsborough:

Still waiting on the 8.01am Kilkcock-Connolly train?

Two more crashes are being reported now, one in Limerick and the other in Kildare:

The Headford Road in Galway is slow inbound from Ballinfoyle to the Kirwan roundabout. Traffic is still relatively calm in the city, though.


That fog is starting to clear in Dublin:

That’s all from us, folks. I’m out of here – out of the liveblog, that is.

We’ll be back from 7am tomorrow with more traffic updates.
