Gardaí are investigating all the circumstances of a fatal road traffic collision that occurred shortly before 2pm on Friday, 3rd June, 2022, on the M50 Northbound.

The collision, which occurred between Junction 9 and Junction 7, involved two motorcycles and a truck.

The two motorcyclists (males aged in their 50s and 60s) were pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver was uninjured.

The road, which was closed for a number of hours between Junction 9 and Junction 7 Northbound as Gardaí investigated the incident, has now reopened fully.

Forensic Collision Investigators have concluded a technical examination of the scene.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this collision to come forward.

Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) who were travelling on the M50 Northbound before Junction 9 prior to the road being closed or any road users who may have passed the scene are asked to please make this footage available to Gardaí.

An Garda Síochána is aware of graphic images of this collision which are being shared across social media and messaging applications and is appealing to the public not to share this material as it is disrespectful to the deceased and their family and friends.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lucan Garda Station on 01 6667300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
