Met Éireann has issued a yellow low temperature and ice warning for Monday evening and night.

The cold snap, which will see temperatures drop below zero, will lead to “hazardous” conditions including icy stretches on roads and paths, says the weather forecaster.

There will also be sleet or snow flurries in places.
