Those sittings will now be rescheduled for the coming weeks. 

Elsewhere, the council has said all roads remain open apart from the Kinnitty to Mountrath road, the R440 Regional Road and the L8001-1 across the Slieve Blooms, which was closed yesterday.

Gritting and ploughing took place on most routes as the council moves to deal with the heavy snowfall overnight.
