Snow Day: Ireland wakes up to a white morning

Snow fell in various areas across the country overnight.

SNOW IS ALWAYS a little bit exciting, isn’t it?

Yes, traffic is terrible, driving is dangerous, walking can be a nightmare and did we mention the cold? But it does make everything look a little bit prettier.

Some of our readers from across the country have shared their early-morning images of the snow for us to enjoy.
