Mountmellick in Laois resembled a Christmas scene this evening February 28, with the famed tree still partially up, and snow covering the town. 

Many shops closed early, with few venturing out.

Here are a few images before the snow returned tonight. 

All of Laois will be under a Status Red weather warning from 4pm tomorrow, with snow blizzards, zero disability, and a warning to stay at home until Friday at 12 noon.
