Warning of icy road conditions



 Motorists are being warned of dangerous driving conditions this morning after freezing overnight temperatures caused icy roads.

Ice and frost may be a problem for drivers on many roads around the country, particularly those that have not been treated.

There have been no fresh snow falls but Met Éireann have said road temperatures are well below zero on most national routes.

Two Dublin Bus Routes are affected by the poor road conditions.

The 44B is only operating as far as Kilternan and the 65 is only operating as far as Ballymount.

AA Roadwatch is asking drivers to reduce speed and keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front.

In Britain more snow is forecast later today, which could affect ferry sailings on the Irish Sea and flight schedules at British airports.

Flights at Dublin airport are back to normal and are running to schedule so far this morning.

Frost should clear later in the day but may be slow to clear in some places in the north, the west and some parts of the midlands.

Motorists in the North have been also warned to watch out for icy roads especially in the Belfast and Lisburn areas.

There are also reports of foggy conditions in parts of Co Tyrone.

The Roads Service says it is gritting all main roads, covering about one quarter of all roads in Northern Ireland.

However, many minor roads are not treated and may be slippery.

Most flights are arriving and departing normally at Belfast City and International airports and City of Derry.
