It turns out magic isn't just for one day a year as snow day means Christmas has come once again - just in time for March.
People across the city have been enjoying the rare appearance of snow in the capital. A snow fight erupted in a Trinity amongst Venezuelan and Brazilian students as they enjoyed their first ever snow day and it was captured on film by passersby.

A few people ran away with themselves though. On the LUAS green line, a number of young passengers covered the tracks in snow which caused significant traffic delays:
#Luas Green Line services running with delays as the track was blocked by children behaving irresponsible on the tracks block the tramway with mounds of snow.

And apparently a giant snow fight was meant to happen between North and South Dublin but so far we can't find any footage of the what we imagine would be the joke of the next century. It turns out the event called 'Massive Snowball Fight With South Dublin' is now happening tomorrow, March 1st, at 2 pm - gas. Click here to attend:
