A lorry has overturned on the N-80 in Carlow this afternoon (Thursday).
It happened near Tinryland just before 4pm.
Traffic was reduced to one lane with a ‘stop and go’ system in operation while emergency services cleared the scene.
The Fire Services managed to reopen the road by about 5.30pm.
But they’ve informed KCLR News that they will have to close it down for a couple of hours again tomorrow morning so that they can recover the truck which is still on the scene.
The N80 will be closed from 6am between the M9 Junction and the Fighting Cocks until it’s been removed.
No injuries are being reported.
