Gallery | Blanket of snow creates winter wonderland in Lovely Leitrim

The majority of the county was greeted by a blanket of snow this morning resulting in treacherous driving conditions for motorists while many schools were forced to close.

We asked readers to submit photos of the snow in their areas and we have been inundated with some fabulous images from around the county.

If you have pictures from your local area taken in the snow we would love to see them - please email them to editor@leitrimobserver.ie.

Gardaí have issued a reminder to the public to check on the wellbeing of elderly neighbours during this cold spell.
