MET EIREANN: Blizzard conditions have passed for Louth

A Red Level warning remains in place in Louth for snow and strong easterly winds this morning.

However, the blizzard conditions have passed and the public safety advice to shelter indoors is withdrawn.

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.

There are variations in storm impact across the country and people need to take account of circumstances locally before deciding to venture outdoors or undertake journeys.

In particular, it will take some time to get roads open again and people should listen for local updates on road conditions.
