Two units of the fire brigade service attended the scene, along with an ambulance. The driver of the turned-over car was taken to Tallaght Hospital.

Traffic going into the village was diverted by Gardaí away from the road leading from the village towards the bypass.

Road conditions in the area were bad due to the heavy rain falls on Wednesday.

Torrential rain conditions made driving difficult and are thought to be a contributory factor in the accident.
