In just under 24-hours the second cattle-related incident has occurred in the country, with a collision involving cattle on the M7.

A collision has occurred on the M7 motorway involving cattle this morning, forcing it to close in the process.

The area of the M7 between Roscrea and Moneygall, the J22 and J23 exits, remained closed for a period this morning after the collision. Emergency services were called on site to try and deal with the accident, which is the second cattle-related collision in recent days.

Yesterday a herd of cattle was struck by a train travelling from Dublin Heuston to Galway. The accident caused significant delays on the line, with passengers forced to wait over three hours before being released. Many cattle were killed as a result, though no passengers were injured. See the full story here.

Update - It has been confirmed, via theaa.ie, that the M7 road, between Moneygall and Roscrea, has now reopened as of 10:26am.
