The N16 Sligo to Manorhamilton road at Diffreen has now reopened.


UPDATE, 1:45

The N16 Sligo to Manorhamilton road at Diffreen will be blocked in both directions this afternoon from 2:15pm for a short time.

The closure is to allow the removal of an articulated lorry.

Gardai are advising motorists to avoid the area.


11am: Two roads in north Leitrim on which traffic was obstructed earlier this morning are now open again.

One carriageway had been blocked on part of the Sligo/Manorhamilton road at Diffreen, after a truck struck a branch at the side of the road.

Meanwhile, there’s been a two-vehicle accident on the Rossinver to Kinlough road.

A ‘Road Closed’ sign had been erected at the scene, which was attended by an ambulance.

Gardai say the road is now open again.
