Thousands of commuters get to and from work via Portarlington train station in Laois every week. 

Today is no different and these Laois commuters have taken to Twitter to ask Irish Rail why no grit or salt has been spread in the car park or on the platform this morning.

These tweets show people's concern and anger at the state of the train station on this icy, snowy morning. 

More Laois schools have decided to stay closed this Monday due to icy roads.

Laois parents say schools are 'putting people's lives in danger' by opening on Monday.
