Bren Whelan descends the slopes of Inishowen, County Donegal after Ireland’s first significant snow fall of winter 2014.
Next week, ice skating from Connemara..
Fair play play though, in fairness.

Met Éireann says the weather on Sunday will be:
“Bitterly cold and rather blustery. Good spells of sunshine but scattered showers too – mainly affecting the western half of the country. Some of the showers will be wintry in nature, with snow on western and northern hills and possibly some sleet on lower levels here. A flurry or two is possibly on higher ground further east. Highest temperatures just 3 to 6 degrees Celsius, in a fairly fresh westerly breeze. Similar conditions persisting overnight. Cold with some frost as winds moderate, with some snow accumulation possible in the north overnight.”

Saw Bodger’s post earlier with the Aer Corps aerial photos of the snow that fell on this day back in 2010Thought you might like to feature this video I shot and edited of the fresh snowfall around the Dublin Docklands that evening. The music is ‘Wired, Islands’ by the amazing Sacred Animals from Wexford .
