Road Safety Alert – Black Ice and Sun Glare 22 November 2017: The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is advising all road users to take extra care when using the roads over the coming days as frosty and ‘blinding’ sun conditions are forecast. Cold wintry weather will develop too mainly in the North and West of the county from Thursday into the weekend. Lower temperatures will mean roads may be icy with risk of black ice. The RSA is asking road users to check local weather and traffic conditions and be aware of the conditions before setting out on a trip. The RSA has the following advice for road users, when driving in icy conditions: • Clear your windows and mirrors before you set out, carry a screen scraper and de-icer. Do not use hot water on the windscreen as it can crack the glass. • Watch out for "black ice." If the road looks polished or glossy it could be, black ice” one of winter's worst hazards: Black Ice is difficult to see! It is nearly transparent ice that often looks like a harmless puddle or is overlooked entirely. It can occur especially in sheltered / shaded areas on roads, under trees and adjacent to high walls. • Use dipped headlights at all times of poor visibility to ensure you are seen by other motorists • Watch out for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists and allow extra space. As Met Eireann are forecasting sunny clear days over the next few days drivers are also being warned of the danger posed by ‘sun glare’. This can result in drivers being temporarily dazzled or blinded by the intensity and brightness of a low sun on the horizon. In such conditions drivers are reminded to: • Minimize risk by wearing sun glasses • Ensure your windscreen is clear of grease or grime inside and out. Add windshield washer fluid to the water in the reservoir and check that the wipers are not worn away or damaged. Replace them if they are. • Reduce your speed and slow down on the approach to junctions, corners and bends is critical. Pedestrians and cyclists are advised to: • While walking on footpaths and in public places, or entering and exiting your vehicle, don’t underestimate the danger of ice. Many slips and falls happen in places people regard as safe and secure, typically outside their front door, on the door step, on the path or while getting out of the car. Take extra care. Please also see our new severe weather warning videos created in collaboration with Teresa Mannion with advice for driving in sun glare and icy conditions can be seen here. Our severe weather advice video for driving in sun glare can be seen here. Our severe weather advice video for driving in icy conditions can be seen here.

The U15 girls had a special guest at training this evening - Ireland international Aine O Gorman! Aine very kindly ran a full training session for the girls which they really enjoyed. Great fun had by all. 🙌
Well done to the U12 Girls who advanced to the next round of the cup with a big win away to Dunboyne. Our U10's also put in a strong display against Lucan to secure an equally big win. There may have been plenty of goals in those 2 games but it was defence that came out on top in the U11 clash against Enniskerry. The visitors threw everything at our girls for the last 15 minutes but couldn't break through against a defence yet to concede a goal in the league this season and our girls took the points thanks to a first half goal. In the U15's there were mixed foruntes, the first team securing an excellent 2-0 win on the road at Shankill but the B's going down narrowly, 2-1 away to St Itas with Katie Ivory netting. U13's game was called off due to Shelbourne's pitch being unplayable.
