    Look at the map and tell me how this is all RoI red warning, it's just not right. Any how, what's done is done.

    Parts of Northern Ireland have done way better than a good bit of ROI. At the min it def looks like an overreaction for all of IReland and I get that met eireann are hoping it comes of or serious questions will be asked ref nationwide warning

    Yes but only looks like southeast and possible east coast. Rest of Ireland looks in the clear. Going by latest models of course

    Barely Dodo, hardly life threatening. Any how, it's done now, no point arguing about it.

    Meanwhile I am sitting in Belfast City Centre where heavy snow continues to fall and no Red here.

    Just to add to the met ie red warning debate. 

    Is it not ridiculous to close schools in places that haven't seen a flake and aren't likely to see a flake.

    yes there is always a chance but maybe a yellow or even amber be prepared might be more suitable!

    Serious? I'm literally a mile up from City Centre in North Belfast (for work) and there's no snow falling here (though there is a covering from last night here at work - none few miles up the road in Mallusk lol)

    out for a walk now and ive never seen conditions like it. unreal windchill and snow blowing into ur eyes. roads are empty exept for an odd tractor. dangerous enough to be out in it and id say it merits at least an orange warning. monaghan town is more or less shut down i hear.
