It is definitely beginning to feel very festive with the latest cold snap bringing a dusting of wintry whiteness across the Region. We will admit that a blanket sneachta never fails to bring out the nostalgia in us of playful winters gone by.
We’ve done a little snooping to show you some of the best photos from the latest cold snap in the West.
