Motorists in Dublin city centre have been warned of increased disruption due to ongoing Luas works this weekend.

The south quays will be closed this evening to east-west traffic for up to eight days.

Parts of Burgh Quay and Aston Quay will be closed at O'Connell Bridge from 8pm this evening.

Although traffic will still be able to travel north-south across O'Connell Bridge, cars travelling west on Burgh Quay will be diverted through College Green, where restrictions on private cars will be temporarily lifted.

There will be lesser restrictions on the north quays.

The closures and diversions will last until early on Saturday 12 August.

GAA fans attending this weekend's games in Croke Park are being advised to use the M50 and access the ground from the north.

Soccer fans are advised to use the M50 to get to the Aviva from the south.
