A status yellow wind warning remains in place for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.

North and northwest counties are said to be most at risk, as well as higher ground elsewhere.

The warning is in place until 6pm on Friday.

The status orange alert was put into place on Thursday afternoon for Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo.

Forecasters warn of snow showers over the evening, as well as on Friday.

He further added how he did not get any choice at that time as he said, "And the response was: 'Oh, you don't get a say". So there's some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw 'Logan , ' I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes.

The latest forecast on the Met √Čireann website reads that there will be "some clear spells, fairly widespread wintry showers also, heaviest & most frequent over Ulster, North Connacht & North Leinster, accumulations of snow expected".

The public has been warned to beware of icy roads and footpaths. Frost may linger in places and temperatures at best will range 1 to 3 degrees. It will turn progressively colder as the day progresses, in a strong west to northwest wind and some of the showers will turn wintry later in the day.

Road conditions will be in a poor state across the country and motorists are advised to be vigilant for ice and to slow down.

Commenting on the research, Deirdre Ashe, Director of Personal Lines at Liberty Insurance, said: "Our research reveals that as a country, we now lack confidence in our driving abilities in adverse weather conditions".
