The entire county may be on lockdown tonight but it's also provided some with a chance to capture some truly uplifting images of the county as it experiences the most extreme weather event to hit the nation in more than three decades.

A flavour of the sheer magnitude of the snowfall which has gripped the county was eloquently chronicled earlier this evening by local engineer Mark Cunningham.

Taking in truly mesmerising shots of St Mel's Cathedral and Ballymahon town, these are the kind of realities which are tonight facing scores of towns and villages up and down the county in the midst of Storm Emma.
