Snow turns the Comeraghs above Clonmel into a winter wonderland

The Seven Sisters in the Comeragh mountains near Clonmel covered in snow.

The forecasters got it right and snow fell across much of the country today.

While the north-west and west may have got most of the winter weather, Tipperary also got its white covering, if on a smaller scale.

Certainly in the higher areas arounds Clonmel it turned into a winter wonderland on Thursday afternoon, especially in the Comeraghs.

These photographs by John D Kelly gave an indication of  how glorious our countryside can be in such weather.
