Motorists warned to avoid the Castleblayney and Castletown Road
The road at Mount Avenue, locally known as the 'back of the wall' is closed this morning.
Reports from motorists on the New Traffic Watch Louth And Monaghan And Speed
A post also noted that traffic was backed up past the motorway bridge as a result of the road closure.
A member of the Facebook traffic watch group commented: "Surely mount avenue could have been closed last week when the schools were off instead of this week for less impact on people."
It is not known when the road will reopen. More as we have it.
