In her forecast after the RTÉ news Met Éireann meteorologist Joanna Donnelly said freezing the snow would ease as Storm Freya moves to the east.

She said freezing temperatures caused the snow and it will continue.

"It will continue overnight causing ice on the roads," she said.

This freezing weather will turn the snow and slush into ice making for 'dangerous conditions on the road tonight'.
