Two motorcyclists confirmed dead after M50 crash
Two men died following a crash on Dublin's M50 on Friday (3 June), Gardaí have confirmed.
The collision occurred before 2pm on the M50 Northbound between Junction 9 and Junction 7 and involved two motorcyclists and a truck.
The two motorcyclists, men in their 50s and 60s, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the truck was uninjured.
The road was closed off for several hours on Friday as emergency services attended the scene.
It has since fully reopened after a technical examination was carried out by investigators.
Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward.
Any road users who may have camera footage, including dashcam footage, who were travelling on the M50 Northbound before Junction 9 prior to the road being closed or who may have passed the scene are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.
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.
An Garda Síochána also said it is aware of graphic images of the fatal collision being shared across social media and messaging applications and appealed to the public not to share this material, describing it as "disrespectful to the deceased and their family and friends".
