Tipperary motoring alert! Dense fog making driving conditions difficult

Dense fog making driving hazardous.

There is a Status Orange Fog Warning in place for the country today. The warning is valid until midnight.

Fog has been reported so far this morning in many parts of Munster, Connacht and the midlands. 

It is particuarly dense in large parts of Tipperary, including Clonmel where visibility is very restricted in parts.

Dense fog may linger in some parts of the country through much of today giving rise to poor visibility and hazardous driving conditions.

Motorists are advised to reduce their speed, keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and use their fog lights in the affected areas but don't forget to turn them off afterwards.
