Poll: Would you like a big snow event?

It’s already really cold out – but in for a penny in for a pound, right?

AFTER GETTING A drop of snow this week, would you fancy a big snow event in the next couple of weeks?

This question may prompt an urban-rural split, as a big snow can mean it’s dangerous, or not possible, for people in the most rural parts of Ireland to leave their homes.

But a big snow may give children – and adults, let’s be honest – something new to do during Level 5 restrictions, even if it’s just for a few days.

So this Friday we’re asking you: on balance, would you like a big snow event?

Poll Results:

Yes, sure why not (6055)
No, I'd like a snow-free zone please (2779)
No, a small snow is fine for me (1398)
