‘Exceptionally high’ snowfall expected in Leinster, Munster and Galway, says Irish Times headline. “The worst snow seen for 35 years.”
Up to a metre of snow could accumulate in parts of Dublin over the coming days as blizzard like conditions sweep across the State, a Met Éireann forecaster said.
The State was put under the highest weather warning, a red alert, with the worst snow seen for 35 years forecast
