Connacht and Munster derby game moved to Monday

Pitch in Galway needs time to thaw out, Connacht chiefs say.

FLIGHTS TO AND FROM Dublin airport have resumed after the airport was closed earlier to allow snow to be cleared from runways. Heavy snowfall earlier today meant the runways were not safe for braking aircraft. Siobhan Moore from the DAA told RTÉ News at One that the airport’s crews have been working very hard to clear the snow and to help passengers. Further closures depend on the level of snow that falls.

THE DUBLIN AIRPORT Authority has suspended all flights to and from Dublin airport. The authority says that “persistent heavy snowfalls” over the past hour have resulted in “severe contamination of the main runway”. It means that the braking action of planes is not safe to use on the runways. The airport is estimated to re-open at 1.30pm today but it is best to consult with airlines before heading to the airport.

Most air and land services are running as normal this morning, with some notable disruptions in the capital. Mét Éireann has warned people to avoid all unnecessary travel.

FOR THE SECOND TIME in a week, it transpires that the must-have accessory for international music superstars isn’t a chihuahua in a handbag, or even their own tour bus – it’s an Iarnród Éireann train ticket. The Irish Rail Twitter account claims that U2 travelled on the 2:30pm train from Cork to Heuston today, after having two flights cancelled on the home leg of their return from touring in Australia. Last week, Shakira took the Belfast Enterprise from Dublin Connolly to travel for a gig up north.
