N55 re-opened after lorry jack-knifed this morning

The N55 is now clear following an incident with a jack-knifed lorry earlier this morning.

A section of the road approximately 1 km towards the Cavan side of Killydoon was closed earlier by Gardai when the lorry became stuck

Motorists were directed to use the Gowna road which was then blocked by two more lorries, which has also since been cleared.

It was expected that the N55 would remain closed for a number of hours however, Gardai have confirmed that it has been cleared and the road fully opened.
