As Ireland braces itself for Siberian weather this week with large falls of snow and icy conditions expected, the Offaly County Council gritters will be out and about across the county. 

The weather forecast for the week will be updated throughout the week but at the moment it looks as if there will be substantial snow falls with temperatures struggling to get above freezing even during daylight hours.
