'Stay indoors'  warning lifted as blizzard conditions pass Offaly

The 'Stay indoors' warning has been lifted this morning by the National Emergency Coordination Group.

It said the blizzard conditions have passed and the public safety advice to shelter indoors is withdrawn.

However, a Status Red weather warning is still in place for Leinster and Munster until 6pm. 

"Conditions are and will remain very difficult and the public are advised continue to exercise high levels of caution for their own safety in the extreme cold, accumulated snow and icy conditions underfoot," it said.
