In an effort to clear snow from the worst affected areas, Wicklow County Council is deploying additional engineering resources, Council crews and extra plant and machinery.
Council personnel in these areas are also liaising with the local farming community and plant hire contractors to clear the roads the Council has been unable to get to.
In addition, the Army is providing two snow ploughs together with two loading shovels with drivers to support the Council and community effort.
