Traffic had built up as far back up as the Rock of Dunamaise landmark which is half way between the two towns and nearly 6km from Stradbally.

Gardaí were on the scene and have diverted traffic away from the road. Portlaoise guards confirmed that traffic volumes were heavy trough and en route to the Laois village. 

Thousands of extra Picnicers were due arrive on Sunday attending with one day tickets.
