A weather warning has been issued for every county in the Republic of Ireland following sleet and snow that caused travel disruptions in some areas.

Met Éireann, the Irish weather agency, cautioned that cold temperatures could lead to ice forming on untreated surfaces, creating hazardous travel conditions. The status yellow ice warning will be in effect from 6pm on Friday until 9am on Saturday.

Previously, a status yellow snow and ice warning had been issued for Munster, Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Offaly, Wexford, and Wicklow. This warning was valid from midday to 6pm on Friday.

Additionally, a yellow rain warning with the potential for local flooding was in place for Dublin, Louth, Meath, and Wicklow until 3am on Saturday.

Met Éireann reported temporary accumulations of snow and falling sleet that could reduce visibility and create dangerous travel conditions.

Although a snow and ice warning had been in effect for Cavan, Monaghan, Kildare, Longford, Westmeath, Leitrim, Roscommon, Sligo, and Donegal, it has since expired.

Iarnród Éireann, the national railway operator, experienced delays on some DART trains in Dublin, with services between Lansdowne and Dun Laoghaire temporarily suspended.

Bus Éireann services to and from Dublin, Donegal, and Cavan were also canceled due to inclement weather, as were services between Cavan and Dundalk. Dublin Bus’s 44B route from Glencullen was curtailed due to weather conditions.

In Northern Ireland, police reported numerous vehicles becoming stuck in heavy overnight snow in and around Enniskillen, County Fermanagh. They advised motorists to consider the necessity of their journeys and to travel with extra caution.

The UK Met Office had previously issued a snow warning for Armagh, Fermanagh, Tyrone, and Londonderry, which expired at 10am on Friday.
