a hole-y mess

This sinkhole has opened up in the middle of Dublin

There are traffic diversions in place on Dublin’s Dame Street.


A SINKHOLE HAS opened up on Dublin’s Dame Street, causing traffic delays in the centre of the city.

The hole is around three feet in diameter and has been cordoned off by Garda at the scene.

It is expected to be covered later this evening and an investigation into what caused it will begin tomorrow.

An engineer at the scene said that it could have been caused by water damage to the foundations beneath the road surface.

Westbound traffic on Dame Street is currently suspended between George Street and Parliament Street and cars are being advised to use alternative routes.
