Significant snowfall last night into this morning, coupled with freezing conditions, has left all roads and footpaths in Kilkenny City and county in extremely poor condition.

While Kilkenny County Council has been working throughout the night and morning, road users and pedestrians should exercise extreme caution and only make trips if essential. 

Further significant snowfall is predicted over the coming days and extreme caution is required by all. Further updates will follow throughout the day.

A Status Orange weather warning is currently in place for Kilkenny: Scattered heavy snow showers continuing today, tonight and tomorrow with further accumulations.
