BREAKING: Further road closure announced in Offaly as snow covers the county

In the interest of public safety, a decision has been taken to close the L-4025- 1 and L-4025- 2 Kinnitty Road to Roscrea from Kinnitty Village to Brereton’s Pub, Offaly County Council warns.

That is further to the closure of the R440 between Kinnitty and Mountrath announced yesterday ahead of the arrival of the Beast from the East weather system. That weather system has dumped around 10cm of snow in most parts of Offaly. 

Gardaí have told the Offaly Express that the roads "are closed until further notice due to the severe weather event."
