It's December 3 and snow has arrived in Ireland.
Earlier today, Met Éireann issued the first snow warning of the winter with Donegal told to expect "heavy wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow", as well as "reduced visibility and accumulations likely in places."
However, this clip, taken by Twitter user Mike Marron, shows the white stuff falling a lot further south, specifically in Co. Clare. Posted to Twitter at 9.42am, it shows snow falling at an elevation of 180 metres, confirming earlier forecasts that snow would fall on high ground this week.
