Cold Snaps, Part Two: More dazzling photos of Ireland in the ice, frost and snow

We want to see your winter wonderland.

LAST UPDATE | Dec 16th 2022, 9:35 PM

WHILE THIS WEATHER might be downright adversarial for driving, walking and general daily functioning, it does make for some very pretty pictures.

Given that we are typically subjected to deluges of rain, interspersed with fierce mildness, it is not often that Irish weather produces the photogenic results we have seen across the country over the past week. 

We’ve collected some of the best photos that The Journal readers have sent in, as well as a couple from PA Images.
