A MAN IN his 20s has died following a single-vehicle collision in Dublin last night.

The road was closed overnight to allow for the scene to be examined by forensic collision investigators. It has since re-opened.

Investigating gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to come forward. They are particularly appealing to any road users who were travelling on this road at the time and have camera footage to make it available to them.
