A snowman is left out in the cold at Trinity College, Dublin
Dempsey told to 'come out of hiding' as chaos reigns
From the article:
"Met Eireann is predicting the big freeze that has ground the country to a halt will continue for another week at least.
But despite the deepening crisis, neither Taoiseach Brian Cowen or any of his senior ministers were available last night to outline what the Government is doing to help stranded motorists and homeowners living in isolated areas.
There is also no national emergency plan in place to co-ordinate relief and rescue efforts across the country amid growing fears for the safety of elderly people living alone who are struggling to heat their homes."
