Met Eireann has lifted its blizzard warning and removed instructions for the public to stay indoors until 6pm this evening.
However, a status red snow-ice warning is currently in place for Munster, Leinster and Galway with strong easterly winds until 6pm.
A status orange warning is in place for the rest of the country.
The worst affected counties at this stage appear to be Cork, Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, Wicklow, Kildare, Dublin, Meath, Cavan, Tipperary, Offaly, Galway and Kerry.
The public are advised not to make any unnecessary journeys as many roads in Ireland remain “treacherous” and “impassable”.
