Motorists are being advised to take extra care as wintry conditions cause major delays across the country this evening.
Snowfall has affected routes around Tipperary, Kilkenny, Offaly, Laois, Kildare, Westmeath and Meath and Gardai are advising people to avoid travelling on routes in these areas, due to treacherous conditions and multiple incidents.
Gardai say driving conditions are poor in the midlands on the M4, M7 and M8 and are asking motorists are asked to exercise caution and reduce speed.
Gardai are also asking drivers to log onto winterready.ie for further advice.
Iarnrod Eireann says all lines are operating this evening with no significant effect of the snow on services.
It had some minor points issues but it's been able to clear them quickly.
Met Eireann currently has a Status Yellow Snow-ice Warning in operation for all of Ireland until 8am tomorrow morning.
Met Éireann Forecaster Harm Luijkx says once rain and snow clears this evening, ice will be the main issue.
He explained: "There's heavy rain in many parts of the country at the moment - and as it's falling the temperatures are dropping, so it has turned into sleet and even snow in parts of the south-west.
"As all this rain, sleet and snow clears during the evening and early night, temperatures will fall to just below freezing. That can cause the slushy snow or the rain to freeze and [lead to] icy roads overnight."
