Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says conditions will be particularly poor in some parts of the country;
"Some heavy snow showers appeared over Connacht and Ulster especially, and a little further inland also but that was followed then by a drop in temperatures which is leading to some very icy conditions this morning."
Met Eireann says;
Scattered showers will continue tonight, mainly of rain but turning wintry in parts of the north and west and on high ground. Lows of between 0 and +2 degrees in the eastern half of the country early in the night with some frost patches'
