Ireland Managers In Crash
Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill and assistant Roy Keane have been involved in a road traffic accident, just days ahead of the crucial Euro qualifier with Scotland.
The Football Association of Ireland announced the incident in a post on its Twitter feed, and a team spokesman confirmed all involved avoided serious injury and were able to return to the team hotel.
The FAI said on Twitter: "The ROI management team were involved in collision on M50 earlier. Vehicle was rear ended in traffic. Have returned to hotel and been seen by team doctor.''
A spokesman said O'Neill and Keane were accompanied by coaches Seamus McDonagh, Steve Guppy and Steve Walford at the time of the accident.
The worst any of the five suffered were minor injuries, the FAI confirmed, with the team doctor able to look after their scrapes.
The accident comes ahead of the Republic's Euro 2016 qualifying match against Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday.
