Cats’ clash with Wexford called off as Kilkenny included in new snow-ice warning
KILKENNY’S clash with Wexford was called off as the weather conditions worsened today, with Met Éireann including both counties in a new snow-ice warning at lunchtime.
The game was called off after the surface at Wexford Park underwent three pitch inspections.
Waterford’s clash with Galway and Cork’s match against Tipperary in the National Hurling League were also postponed because of the bad weather.
The GAA announced they would confirm the dates of the rescheduled fixtures tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Met Éireann said heavy rain would turn to sleet and snow today as it issued the warning for Leinster, Munster and for counties Cavan, Monaghan, Galway and Roscommon.
“Much of the snow will be above 200 metres with just a local dusting of snow at lower levels,” the forecaster said.
However, it warned that wet and slushy roads are likely to become icy in places overnight as temperatures drop below freezing.
The warning is valid until 8am tomorrow.
