Ice and slush causes several crashes on one Offaly road

The AA are advising people to take extreme care if travelling on the R420 road between Tullamore and Portarlington after reports of several incidents this morning.

Commuters have reported seeing multiple cars in ditches at points on the road with at least two occurring around the village of Geashill.

The road conditions on the route are described as treacherous with ice and slush resulting in extremely difficult driving conditions.

Motorists are being advised to avoid the area if possible or to exercise caution, reduce speed and be mindful of black ice if on the road.
