We were promised snow, and many people were not disappointed.
A number of weather alerts were issued by Met Éireann on Wednesday for snow, ice and cold temperatures.
Many of us woke to a light (or heavy) covering of snow - and people got creative.
Some used the white gold to leave messages of solidarity and hope.

My little Teddy Bear on heavy snowfall in #Carlow. First time I went outside of my home in the snow in 2021.
I placed a face mask to remind ourselves that the year 2021 will be a difficult one with the #pandemic and we can overcome it with health safety precautions. #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/xJL1UebkPo

Some people got creative with their surroundings.

And for some, it was a totally new experience.

Bit of snow in Dublin today. The swans clearly weren't pleased about walking in it. pic.twitter.com/woak0QDtFY

The nicest thing about snow is the excitement it evokes. It’s something that touches the child in us all. Waking up to it is magical, but my favourite is to watch it fall. #theviewfrommybedroom #snow #leitrim #ireland #sneachta ❄️🌨☃️ pic.twitter.com/RM51hCbKJY
