Effective for 28th Feb only
With the inclement weather conditions and STATUS ORANGE and RED weather alerts in place for the coming days, Gardai are advising motorists NOT to travel unless necessary.
Poor conditions have been reported on secondary routes across Waterford.
Gardai in Dungarvan report that conditions on the N25 between Youghal and Ardmore are quite slippery and icy. Drive with care.
If you do have to travel, allow extra time for your journey and for your car to de-frost before setting off. Don’t forget that stopping distances are ten times longer when driving on snow and ice. Slow down and drive with extra care. Take some time to use a sweeping brush or something similar to brush all snow off your car before setting off on your journey. Clear snow from your headlights and use dipped headlights at all times, regardless of driving in daylight or darkness.

Wexford Bus say services are currently operating as they continue to monitor the poor weather.
