The 'Beast from the East' weather system is causing chaos in many parts of Ireland.

But Donegal has generally escaped lightly, although parts of Inishowen did get some snow showers recently.

Letterkenny based reporter Chris Ashmore posted this video, taken just after 5.00 pm today, to remind the rest of the country that, yes, up here it's different.

We had sun in many places.

The national airwaves are choking with stories about bad weather - but it's not bad at all in parts of the sunny north-west.

All to often people assume that the weather in Donegal is always worse!

What about today then?

Letterkenny shortly after 5.00 pm on Wednesday, February 28th, 2018
