No injuries as but motorway shuts down in Laois after crashes

No injuries have been reported following a series of crashes which forced Gardaí in Laois to close one of the country’s motorways after a string of crashes following a night of hard frost.

This morning, Wedndesday, November 28, the garda closed the M7 from junction 14 (Monasterevin) to Junction 15 (Ballybrittas) both southbound and northbound following a number of collisons on this part of the motorway.

Diversions are in place and motorists are asked to follow diversions.

The AA reported that the council are continuing to grit the M7 Dublin/Limerick southbound at J14 Monasterevin where conditions remain icy.

Gardai said all the incidents were minor single vehicle collisions and there were no injuries.
