Very few parts of the country have escaped the poor conditions after the Status Orange Low Temperature Warning from Met Éireann this morning.
Allow plenty of extra time for your journey. If you’re driving in such conditions, slow down and make sure your dipped headlights are on. Remember it can take up to ten times longer to stop your vehicle on icy roads, so leave extra space between your vehicle and the one in front.
It’s still icy in Thurles in Tipperary.
Weather Warning : Code Level Orange
Extremely low temperatures tonight with severe frost, ice and lying snow. Lowest temperatures of -2 to -8 degrees, coldest in east Connacht, Leinster and Ulster. Slippery paths and treacherous roads also due to snow accumulation and ice.
Valid from 20:01 Sunday 10-December-2017 until 10:00 Monday 11-December-2017
