Sir - I wish to highly compliment and congratulate Met Eireann personnel, the National Emergency Co-ordination Committee, all our emergency services and media outlets for their excellent work, judgment and professionalism over the past few days in bringing us all the advice and details relating to the very serious snow storm.

There were a number of cynics who were saying that it was over the top and that Met Eireann may have been over-reacting. But no, it was a very accurate and professionally delivered message by both Met Eireann and our National Co-ordination Committee, and they all deserve a big thank you from all of us. I have no doubt that their message has saved lives and has lessened the hardship for many people throughout the country.

We live near Naas, and our road is completely impassable with drifts nearly 10ft high, and but for the weather alert we may not have been properly prepared.
