    Just wondering if anyone knew why the guards had the top of St Cronan's Ave closed off this morning? I think it was mentioned on the radio that is was a vehicle collision but if it was it seems odd that the road itself would of been closed?

    If it was a major collision then it product closed for crash scene investigation.

    That's a poor state of affairs. Sorry to hear that - my condolences to his family.
    TBH - the CAPS would have been better suited to "FAILED TO STOP" rather than "skateboard".

    Sad news, Keelings seem to have dreadful luck with employees going to and from work. 3rd death of one of their foreign national workers that I know of in the last 10 years.

    I was driving through Swords main st. this morning and thought traffic was heavier than usual (this was at 7:15am)

    Then I heard the announcement on the traffic reports, and thought it was unusual.

    RIP to the poor victim.

    That still has some loopholes, when can we in this forum expect more details?

    When the powers that be have reached their conclusions there will be further announcements that will be relevant across the site and not just to specific forums.

    At this stage the only guidance we have is as per Dav's post, and there's nothing further we can discuss at this time. If you have a specific question regarding application of these guidelines please PM either me or the Hill Billy
