Tommorrow is the 21st Dec and the winter solstice will be beamed live from Newgrange in Co Meath,Ireland.
Usually it is dependent on the usual wintry clouds to be visible but this year with clear skies it will actually be dependent on people being able to access the megolithic tomb through the freezing conditions we are experiencing.
Tonight is supposed to be the coldest night of the big freeze,in fact it has been freezing here all day.Some parts of the country were minus 17% degrees last night!
Parts of Dublin are having heavy snowshowers and they will continue into tomorrow around parts of Leinster and north Munster.
Roads are treacherous as stocks of salt are so low only main routes are being treated until fresh stocks arrive from Egypt into Cork port on Wed.
Mayfield is frozen with only main roads getting any attention, footpaths and housing estates have been left under hard packed icy snow.
