Care urged as snow and ice reported on many routes

Motorists have been urged to drive with care as snow and ice have been reported on many routes throughout the country.

AA Roadwatch has said very snowy conditions have been reported in Monaghan town, Carrickmacross and Castleblayney

Gardaí have said extreme caution should be taken on the N16 Sligo to Enniskillen road between Manorhamilton and Glenfarne in Co Leitrim because of black ice.

Snow and ice have also been reported on roads around Granard in Co Longford and many routes around Mullingar in Co Westmeath are described as being treacherous.

A Status Orange warning for snow and ice remains in effect for Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo until 6pm.

A Yellow warning is in effect for the rest of the country until this evening.

Gardaí in Mayo say care is needed on some routes through the county this morning, after freezing temperature s led to icy patches on a number of secondary roads.

Particular caution is advised on the R312 between Castlebar and Belmullet.

There were hail showers around Ballina but gardaí say all roads are passable.

In Co Galway, there are reports of some icy patches on the N59 to Clifden and care should also be taken on minor roads in the Ballinasloe area.

Gardaí in Cavan are advising motorists to drive with caution. Main roads in the area have been gritted and are clear but minor roads are still treacherous. Flurries of snow are still falling in Cavan.

In Westmeath gardaír say roads in the area are starting to thaw, with main roads clear of snow, but minor routes are still wet and slushy.

No incidents have been reported and gardaí are advising motorists to drive with care.

Further south in Portlaoise gardaí say snow has stopped falling and the roads are thawing.

Snow fell overnight in counties Antrim, Down and Tyrone making driving conditions difficult in some areas.

The icy weather also forced the closure of a number of schools around the north, including St Mary's Christian Brothers Grammar in west Belfast.
