Snow carpeted many parts of the country overnight, affecting roads in some areas.

Met Éireann is warning of icy and hazardous conditions throughout today.

Most areas will be dry tonight with some isolated wintry showers, with a widespread sharp to severe frost expected to set in along with icy stretches.

There will also be some freezing fog too, especially across the northeast and east, while temperatures across the country will range from -2 to -5 degrees Celsius.

Frost, fog and icy stretches will begin clearing on Monday morning, while wintry showers will affect the north and northwest.

Meanwhile, a Status Yellow Snow and Ice is also in place in Northern Ireland until 3pm.

AA Roadwatch is advising motorists to be cautious amid the icy conditions.

They are urging particular care around Clifden in Galway, on higher ground in Kerry, west Cork and Wicklow, and in north-eastern parts of Dublin.
