Extreme caution needed on Kildare's back roads, but main roads fine

Lethal: The road between Robertstown and Donore this morning.

Reports are coming in that while Kildare’s main roads are generally fine, extreme caution is required on the county’s numerous back roads.

Motorists are being advised to drive slowly and with caution on unsalted roads. 

Following a Yellow Status Warning issued yesterday morning by Met Eireann, Kildare County Council launched a major salting operation on roads in the county last night, while a snow plough was on standby if needed.

The rest of today is expected to be cold, bright and dry.
