MOTORISTS are being warned that “extreme care is needed” on Limerick roads due to snow and icy conditions this Wednesday morning.

AA Roadwatch is reporting that emergency services say extreme caution is needed on the N69 in the Foynes area and the M7 in the city area. It reports that the N69 has reopened near Aughinish, between Askeaton and Foynes, after a fallen pole but icy conditions remain.

A collision has also been cleared from the M7 northbound after J28 Castletroy, with caution still advised due to icy conditions.

The M7 is closed northbound between J27 Birdhill and J26 Nenagh West due to a multi-vehicle collision, according to the AA.

Motorists have told the Leader that roads in Kilmallock and Bruff are “treacherous”.
