A status red snow and ice warning is in place across the entire country:

The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is warning people not to take any chances, while we're being advised to stay indoors from 4PM.

Met Eireann updated yesterday's red alert to include every county until tomorrow afternoon.

All schools and colleges will be closed today and tomorrow, as blizzard-like conditions are expected with the arrival of Storm Emma.

 

The Defence Forces will be on hand to provide assistance across the country today.

60 Army personnel were deployed in Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, Kildare, Dublin and Donegal yesterday.
