Winter ready

Caution is being urged on the roads in Offaly this morning after snow and freezing conditions overnight.

Many back roads are treacherous after snow earlier in the night froze over. 

The AA advises to extra time to defrost your car before your journey and reminds motorists that stopping distances are up to 10 times longer in icy conditions.
