You're gonna have to brush up on your road knowledge in Dublin what with all the changes taking place, from roadworks to traffic restrictions.

And now permanent changes have come into place, thanks to the Luas Cross City, which will see city centre driving changed as we know it.

If you thought driving around the city was tough before, you're really gonna have to get to grips with things now...

Here's what has changed:
