Drivers have to contend with icy conditions again this morning

Extreme care is needed on the roads again this morning with very icy conditions being reported right across Carlow and Kilkenny.

Temperatures dipped below minus 3 again in some parts and roads and footpaths are very slippy as a result.

The councils treated the priority routes again but you should still drive with extra caution on all roads.

A car left the old Kilkenny Carlow road earlier at the turn off for Closutton – Gardai attended that incident.

A small number of local schools have closed for today but some of the buses that serve other schools are not running.

Full details on

Divisional Traffic Inspector Anthony Farrell says many roads are treacherous this morning. He’s advising people to leave on time and to leave a safe distance from the car in front and avoid heavy use of the brake.
