Beast From The East: Gallery

By Rachel Petticrew


Ireland shut down today as we greeted the ‘Beast’ and Storm Emma, with a red alert weather warning issued nationwide.

The extreme weather saw all schools and many businesses shut their doors for the remainder of the week.

With the majority of public transport also ceasing during the Siberian snowfall, the country was forced to brave the elements – and there were some fantastic sights to see!

Here’s some of the Beast’s best work throughout the country…
