As snow is such a rarity in Ireland, Twitter is already blowing up with excitement.
According to Met Eireann, this weekend is set to be freezing cold, and people are warned to expect "cold with some clear spells and dry apart from isolated wintry showers."

“Lowest air temperatures of zero to -3 to degrees with a sharp to severe frost and some icy patches.”
We're secretly hoping the snow will stick around for a day or two, but drivers should take caution in icy conditions.
