Now I get why I couldn't remember that one!

In Cork we had a big day of snow on Sunday 10th (I think) Jan 2010 when a front came up from Biscay and stalled at about Mitchelstown. Snowed very lightly but consistently for a good 10 hours. Remember lots of toys thrown out of the pram on here when it became apparent the front was going any further north. Cork airport was closed and everyone had a snow day on the Monday

According to the UK Met Office report for January 1958:

27 inches of level snow was recorded at Aldergrove, Belfast on the 20th.

There was a "very severe snow storm" in January 1884 according to the following resource. It lasted a fortnight. The snow was three feet in depth in the fields and on sheltered roads it was from four to five feet in depth. A number of sheep died during the snow for want of food.

The country people had to cut a path through the snow for foodstuffs.

As far as I can see from reanalysis, January 1884 was a zonal month with a notable deep depression in the last week. But there was this low at the start of February 1884 which had cold air on its back edge.

That does look like it could produce snow but I wonder if this account is a mistaken memory of January 1881? According to CET data it didn't stay cold very long after that snowfall and the rest of both January and February 1884 were generally mild.
