As many as 25 cars were burnt out after being stranded in the heavy snow in Tallaght last night, it has been reported.
Gardai are investigating criminal damage to six vehicles, but according to some local residents the actual number is much higher.
The cars were left on the Tallaght bypass, on Fortunestown's Way, in Jobstown and Bawlea, Extra.ie reports.
