DUBLIN’S TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS are slowly being lifted following the visit of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh to the city centre this afternoon.

Officers from Fitzgibbon Street station have advised motorists to avoid the junction at Dorset Street, Temple Street and Eccles Street where there are some delays as a result of earlier public order incidents there.

O’Connell Street has reopened to traffic, however, while earlier traffic diversions on the N4 have also been lifted.

Furthermore, traffic restrictions along the north and south quays of Dublin have too been lifted, as well as cross traffic restrictions between them – which had temporarily partitioned the city along the River Liffey.

Bus: [Updated, 17:36: All Dublin Bus services are now back to full operation.]

Luas: Full services are resuming between Tallaght and Connolly/The Point on the Red Line, maintaining a full service until 12:30am. Services will operate tomorrow morning between Tallaght and Blackhorse only, until 11:30am.

The Green Line is operating as normal.

All Irish Rail and DART services are operating as normal.

Further live traffic updates can be found on the Garda website.
