Gardaí have issued an appeal for information on a fatal road incident in Co Wicklow.

A 41-year-old man died after he was knocked down at Coyne's Cross in Ashford at around 1.30am.

A 21-year-old man was later arrested under road traffic legislation and brought to Gorey Garda Station but was subsequently released.

Gardaí have asked for anyone who was on the N11, travelling south between 12.30am and 1.45am, to contact them.

They say they want to speak to people who may have seen the man walking, or who witnessed the collision.

The N11 has now reopened southbound between the Newtownmountkennedy and Rathnew exits following the incident.

All diversions have been lifted, but motorists are warned that conditions remain icy in the area.
