A 32-year-old man was seriously injured and taken to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown in Dublin. He was later pronounced dead, Gardaí say.

The driver of the lorry was not injured in the collision.

Gardaí say that the road was closed while a forensic collision examination took place but it was later reopened.
