RTE reports:

The National Emergency Coordination Committee has asked everybody in Munster and Leinster to be indoors by 4pm tomorrow and to stay there until midday on Friday.

It comes as Met Éireann issued a fresh red weather alert for Munster and Leinster for tomorrow afternoon through to Friday afternoon, warning of significant snow drifts in many areas.

It said: “Blizzard-like conditions will develop in heavy snow and strong easterly winds on Thursday evening and will continue Thursday night and Friday morning.”

All schools and third level institutions will close across the two provinces.

All Dublin Bus services will be cancelled tomorrow and Friday. Iarnród Éireann will stop services nationally from 2pm tomorrow and there will be limited Luas and DART services.
