LIMERICK woke up this morning to find cars and homes covered in snow after heavy falls of sleet and snow overnight.
Despite the icy conditions there were no early morning reports of any serious accidents, but caution was urged for all road users.
One caller to the Limerick Leader, who was passing the church and school in Ballynanty, voiced concern for a horse that was left overnight.
“He has nothing to eat only snow, it is a disgrace that an animal would be left there overnight,” he said.
Meanwhile a snow and ice yellow weather warning will be in place until 10am. It will continue mainly cloudy and dry with patches of freezing fog. Scattered showers are also expected.
Limerick Leader readers were active on Twitter from early morning, with Tim Kelly warning: Byroads in County Limerick are very slippy in places. Be careful, go slow. #Traffic #Snow
Gavin Sheehan tweeted @Limerick_Leader also: It’s a chilly one in Limerick this morning.
