The Status Red Weather Warning is in place until 6pm on Friday. Southern and eastern coastal counties expected to receive exceptionally high accumulations.

Met Eireann has also issued a mid-level orange alert for snow-ice in Cork, Waterford and Wexford until Thursday lunchtime.

Matthews, who run 133 services a day between the north east and Dublin, say the company will continue to review the situation and passengers will be kept updated through the Matthews.ie Facebook page.

The National Emergency Co-ordination Group met in Dublin on Tuesday and warned the public to prepare for an exceptional weather event.

A large number of schools and college chose to close today after heavy snowfall in Dublin overnight.

Met Eireann has said "there will be little change" this evening or tonight with the snow showers continuing and snow building on the ground.

The strong easterly winds will steadily ease on Friday night and temperatures will be below freezing once again, down to as low as minus 3 degrees but lower over lying snow.

Between 5-10cm of snow has fallen in many parts of the county and roads are being described as treacherous.

Just one Galway bus route has been cancelled for tomorrow, as the Beast from the East collides with Storm Emma bringing disruptions to services across the country.

"A spin machine can not distribute grit".

"The risk to life and limb presented by severe weather conditions should not be underestimated by anyone", Mr Varadkar said.

Stay tuned to AgriLand for more updates throughout the day.
