Gardai urge motorists don’t travel unless absolutely essential

The Tinahely road from Knockananna this morning

Gardai advise care on all routes around the county particularly in areas of higher ground due to snow and icy conditions. Conditions are treacherous in Baltinglass and Arklow so don’t travel unless absolutely essential.

Roads are also very bad around Enniskerry.

Roads in Knockananna impassable.

Message from Wicklow County Council

Bray SCR and Enniskerry roads gritted yesterday, and continued this morning, ploughing has started and will continue.  Bray Roads are still passable with care except there is a high risk with the Killarney Road.  Gritting will start shortly there and will continue throughout the day as required.

About 1cm of snow fell overnight and is still falling.  Major routes are clear.  Secondary routes passable with care.
