NORTH WICK­LOW SNOWED UN­DER!

Bray People - - Front Page -

THE WIN­TER weather con­di­tions played havoc in North Wick­low on Mon­day morn­ing.

Snow left Bray blan­keted in bril­liant white, but the spec­tac­u­lar scenery spelt a day of frus­tra­tion for com­muters and mo­torists, some of whom sat for hours in a traf­fic jam stretch­ing all the way to Ash­ford.

There were two crashes on Mon­day morn­ing at Grey­stones at the Newtownmountkennedy sec­tion of the N11.

Cars were be­ing aban­doned at the side of the road as driv­ers ei­ther ran out of petrol or thought bet­ter of spending the morn­ing tackling the traf­fic and con­di­tions and walked back home.

‘There was about a 1,000 car tail­back,’ re­ported one mo­torist who spent two and a half hours on the road from Gorey to Bray. She said that vis­i­bil­ity was ex­tremely poor and every­one was slow­ing right down.
