Photos: A light dusting of snow covered Ireland today

A little bit of levity on an otherwise grim news day.

Updated Jan 7th 2021, 3:05 PM

A STATUS YELLOW snow warning has just expired in Ireland, after low temperatures covered much of the country in a thin blanket of snow.

Conditions are a bit treacherous, so drivers are being warned to drive more slowly and with plenty of space between you and other road users or pedestrians.

Here is a few photos of how the country looked like this morning, starting with these beautiful photos of the Phoenix Park deer by Garry Walsh.
