Thaw sets in after “White Christmas” in Donegal

Temperatures have risen slightly after a white christmas, with many areas of Donegal experiencing fresh snowfalls on Christmas Day. However, gardai are warning motorists that while temperatures are not reaching the record lows experienced earlier this week, they will slip below zero in places tonight, and extreme caution is still needed on roads, particularly minor roads which have not been gritted by Donegal County Council.
