MANY COUNTIES ARE battling with dangerous conditions this morning after a snow and ice warning was issued last night.

AA Roadwatch has reports of black ice around Tullamore, Offaly and frosty conditions in Roscommon town and Mullingar in Westmeath.

Ice has also been reported around Longford and Donegal while fog has been reported around Monaghan town, Wicklow town and the Sally Gap.

There are reports of road collisions on the M11 in Wicklow with gardaí warning motorists to take extreme care when driving:

AA is advising drivers to take extra care on secondary roads – particularly in sheltered areas.

The yellow warning issued by Met Éireann for Connacht and Ulster will be valid until 10am.

It also warned of some wintry showers at times and a danger of snow on higher ground.

Snow is most likely in the north but is also possible in places further south, especially in hilly areas. Limerick was hit with heavy snowfalls yesterday.
