Offaly gardaí issue serious warning for falling snow and icicles

Gardaí in Offaly have issued a warning to the public to be aware of the dangers posed by falling snow and ice. 

A garda source said that in Tullamore town and other areas, there are a lot of icicles hanging from rooves and street fitures like lights. 

They are telling people to be aware that these icicles and snow sitting on rooves can loosen and fall to the ground as the snow thaws slowly. 

Although the 'stay indoors' warning has been lifted for people around the country, a Status Red weather alert remains in force in Leinster and Munster until 6pm on Friday evening.
