Good to hear. Worth mentioning though that the worst of the overnight snow seems to have fallen in dublin city centre !

Still a fair bit of snow forecast for today and met have upgraded the advisary to a severe weather warning for mainly the east leinster area.

More widespread snow tonight and tomorrow.
Dublin should get a fair covering.
Rush hour this evening could be very messy.

It was pretty heavy in South Co. Dublin before 8am.

DARTs and Dublin Bus were running well before 8am though which was good.

There already is in a number of places. heard from home heavy snow falling in clonsilla and is sticking. People on the boards website saying there has been accidents in arklow town and aa roadwatch reporting many places on the rosslare line arklow/gorey/rathdrum are telling passengers to take care or avoid them.

Dublin city centre has also got its fair share!

Could be a long night! Take care folks in travelling tonight!

There's already a white carpet across most of D4 and it's staying put. It's a night to light the fire and stay in!

Ah wheres the inner child? get out and throw a few snowballs! Seriously though it could be more to come, and it will be interesting to see how public transport fairs in the morning should it hold up or get worse!

I'm in the D2 and not a flake of the white stuff to be seen anywhere

Dublin Airport is closed due continuing snow, so it looks like things are going to get nasty tonight with the freeze

Took the Green Line and Irish Rail home this evening and both ran perfectly.

Nice one, hope it stays that way.

The removal of Greystones DART services always has a massive positive impact on the service in general

I'm expecting chaos tomorrow, those wonder folks in Irish Rail despite the 1.5 or so billion have failed to provide a few basic bits of kit for these conditions, and yes the crew in Belfast despite being broke have a freeze proof network

Though the waether wa much improved today, both Irish Rail Maynooth line and Green line ran perfectly.

In fact the 07:58 from Maynooth was pretty much on time despite a broken door taking time in Loiusa Bridge.

Dublin didn't get the heavy snow that was expected. I think the south is being worst hit. Snow could return later this evening
