A number of schools were forced to close today (Thursday) due to the heavy snow.

They were Markethill High School, Markethill PS, St Brigid’s High School, Armagh and St John’s Eglish PS, Annaghmore.

In the central Craigavon area, St. Brendan’s PS and St Anthony’s PS did not open.

Some of the schools informed parents via their websites or by text.

Translink said all school services were operating on main roads only due to poor road conditions and that delays were to be expected.
