Statement on Severe Weather Forecast

Louth County Council continues to monitor the situation and is making all preparations possible for the anticipated severe weather. We are in contact with all relevant agencies including An Garda Siochana and the HSE and the Civil Defence have been put on standby.

The Director of Housing has instigated the putting in place of the cold weather response for homeless with SIMON and Drogheda Homeless Aid.

Crews are being assigned to gritting footpaths, clearing snow, assisting with traffic management, water services and any other works necessary.
Brine stations have been checked and filled as necessary and all gritter trucks are fully operational.
Any updates will be published on the Council’s website, www.louthcoco.ie and on Twitter @LouthCoCo.
