Road users are being urged to exercise extreme caution tonight and tomorrow morning.

Met Éireann has warned that paths will be slippery and roads will be treacherous due to the accumulation of ice and snow.  

Temperatures are expected to drop to -4 on Monday and snow will be slow to clear in certain areas.
Gritters have been out in force since the cold snap began on Friday.
