VIDEO: First snow of winter falls in Donegal

The first snow of winter has fallen in Donegal.

There were numerous reports of snow falling in various parts of the county throughout Thursday.

Stunning video footage captured by a drone over the summit at Mount Errigal was posted on Facebook by local climber Iain Miller.

The cold temperatures and frosty weather are expected to last another few days at least.

Met Éireann has issued two yellow status weather warnings for snow-ice and low temperatures respectively.

The weather warnings are valid right up to 12pm on Saturday.
