Latest from RTE....

3 Day Outlook
Thursday night will be very cold everywhere, with moderate to fresh northwesterly winds. Wintry showers will affect many parts of Ulster, Connaught and west Munster, many falling as snow inland and giving accumulations of several centimetres; elsewhere, however, will be dry and mostly clear, apart from some light snow flurries. Despite the wind, ground frost will be sharp to severe, and ice is likely on many surfaces. During Friday, the distribution of wintry showers will be similar, with further accumulations of snow in the north and west; also, parts of the east and south may see more significant snowfall from showers but there will be a lot of dry, bright weather in those areas. Winds will moderate and back westerly on Friday but it will be an extremely cold day with temperatures barely rising above zero degrees Celsius in many places. These bitter, wintry conditions will persist throughout the weekend in all parts of the country. While winds are unlikely to be strong at any stage, there will be variations in wind direction; these will largely determine the location of snowfall from showers being blown onto land from adjacent sea areas. Initially, the north and west will continue taking the brunt but the focus for snowfall is likely to transfer to southern and, eventually, eastern counties as the weekend progresses. The temperature regime will be exceptionally low for mid-December, with overnight frost and ice persisting by day in many areas in addition to random snowfall.
