As the Beast From The East continues to bite

A number of businesses have closed completely due to the bad weather.

Others have adjusted their opening hours as people are warned not to go outside after 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Supermarket chains including Tesco, Dunnes and Lidl in Leinster and Munster are closed.

Postal and banking services have also all shut down.

And it seems rationing has been introduced in some stores.
