Gardai issue advice for Status Red weather warning
1 Mar 2018
A countrywide level Red alert was issued by Met Eireann on Wednesday night, valid until Friday at 3pm.
Further heavy snow showers will bring accumulations of significant levels with all areas at risk.
Blizzard conditions will develop from the south Thursday afternoon and evening as heavy snow and strong easterly winds bring snow drifts northwards over the country. Eastern and southern costal counties will be worst affected.
Gardaí are advising motorist and all road users to use caution on our roads. People should only go out in emergency situations.
"Leave sufficient room between you and the car in front and drive within a speed where you can stop in time."
