Multiple crashes on Dublin's busiest roads has caused another evening of rush hour chaos in the capital.

Collisions have already happened on the M50, M7 and N7 Naas Road and M8 have set up another traffic nightmare for commuters.

The first crash happened on the M50 Northbound just after J11 Tallaght, the incident was quickly cleared but delays have been reported.

AA Roadwatch also reported the two further crashes.

AA posted online: "There’s a collision in the middle lane on the N7 Naas Road outbound at J2 Kingswood. Delays from Newslands Cross.

"Further along, it's slow from J7 Kill through to J11 M9, where the route is down to one lane due to another crash."

It's also the first day of the Dublin Horse Show, and delays are expected near the RDS.

Already Anglesea Rd is slow from Donnybrook to Ballsbridge.
