Bruce Fans Be Warned: There's Absolute Chaos On The M7 Towards Dublin Today
Drivers are reporting tailbacks all the way from Naas to Kildare town
If you're heading from the south to see Bruce Springsteen in Croker tonight, you might want to have a think about your route – there are serious delays on the M7 following an earlier collision.
While the the debris has now been cleared, emergency services are still at the scene of the incident.
The backlog is incredibly heavy, with some drivers reporting delays from Naas all the way back to Kildare town – and journey times of more than an hour between Junction 13 (Kildare Village) and 11 (Naas/M9), which usually takes little more than 10 minutes.

Traffic is CRAY CRAY on M7 heading for Dublin... just volume heading to Bruce or an incident @aaroadwatch ?— Aoife Rigney (@aoiferigney) May 29, 2016
However, AA Roadwatch is reporting that the traffic is moving freely after the site of the incident – and that there's no significant build-up of traffic around Croke Park just yet.
@colombo1865 Hi Colm, traffic is moving well after the crash and on the M50 and it's yet to really build in Drumcondra.— AA Roadwatch (@aaroadwatch) May 29, 2016
