It is understood the incident, outside Terminal One, happened after the driver of the lorry experienced a medical emergency.

The multiple collisions led to disruption at the airport, with roads closed and people facing long delays to access the area or exit car parks.

The roads reopened at 10pm, around two-and-a-half hours after the incident.

The lorry struck the vehicles at the terminal and on the departure road from the airport at around 7.20pm.

A Garda spokesman said: “A number of cars were damaged and it is understood that a number of persons received minor injuries.”

Gardai attended and conducted a technical examination of the scene.

The airport had advised people to allow extra time for their journeys while the closures were in place.
