AA Roadwatch reported heavy traffic on the northbound motorway. The road was closed after junction nine at the Red Cow pub.

Motorists were asked to exit at an earlier junction to avoid delays.

Gardaí said it was too early to report on injuries.

Drivers have been asked to take extra care this evening after Met Éireann issued a red alert for parts of the country.
