Warning for Irish drivers on wet morning as two roads closed following crashes
Irish motorists have been warned to take extra care on the roads this morning following two road closures in different areas of the country.
Drivers are being urged to slow down on Irish roads this morning after two collisions that resulted in road closures.
Yesterday, the AA gave this message which still rings true for drivers today:
