WATCH: An incredible amount of work went into clearing this single Offaly road

Walls of snow line both sides of this one stretch of road

While many local roads across Offaly are still impassable due to drifting snow which has not yet melted, or even started to melt, this rural road in Offaly has been cleared by one local to give access to his house.

The stretch is over a kilometre long and it took a huge effort to get make it passable. 

The walls of snow loom large at each side and our wing mirror did have a brush with them on one occasion but the road itself is in almost perfect condition but it does show again the work that will be needed to clear all such roads in Offaly.

For example, this road in South Offaly was still under eight feet of snow yesterday
