This winter in Ireland has been relatively extreme.  After the heavy rains of November, which caused much of the country to be flooded; the icy weather at Christmas, causing many falls and car crashes; we were treated by some snowfalls.  It is a rare occurence in Ireland and it was amusing to see the whole country stop for a couple of days.

Unfortunately, I was sick and unable to go for nice walk in the countryside but here are a few pictures I managed to take near my house.
