As commuters grapple with snowy conditions throughout the city and county, anyone due to fly from Cork today is advised to contact their airline for the latest information on the status of their flight.
A status orange snow-ice warning remains in place for Cork, Wexford, Waterford, Carlow and Laois this morning, with a red warning issued by Met Éireann for Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Meath.
And the outlook is that the ‘beast from the east’ is here to stay until the weekend.
