A MAN IN his 30s has died after the motorcycle he was riding struck a wall in Dublin this morning.

The crash occurred on Terenure Road East at the junction with Ferrard Road shortly before 8am this morning.

He was treated for his injuries at the scene but died a short time later.

The site has been examined by a garda forensic team, and the body of the deceased man has been removed to the city morgue where the coroner has been notified.

The road had been closed to facilitate the investigation, but it has now re-opened.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the incident to contact them at Terenure Garda Station on 01 666 6400.

Earlier, two men were injured in a three-car collision in Dublin, just as the morning rush hour began this morning.

Three cars collided on the N7 Naas Road at Rathcoole at around 7am this morning.

Traffic was originally down to just one lane on the road, causing delays, but this has since been cleared.

The two men were brought to hospital for further treatment.
