Leitrim schools to remain closed on TUESDAY in aftermath of Hurricane Ophelia

The Department of Educaton has announced that ALL schools and colleges will remain closed tomorrow, Tuesday, October 17 amid travel disruptions caused by Hurricane Ophelia.

Trees and electricity lines are down across the country and amid travel fears, the Department will not re-open schools and colleges on Tuesday.
