We don’t often get snow in Ireland and when we do it’s usually just a dusting.
This snowstorm is a big one and it’s due to get worse tonight! The status red warning is that you should be at home by 4pm today and stay there until the warning is lifted. This is expected to be tomorrow afternoon.
Be careful, don’t go out unless it’s absolutely necessary. Please keep an eye on vulnerable neighbours and make sure that they are safe.
The Westmeath Independent has reports on what events are cancelled over the next few days.
