Homes without power

Many homes across the county continue to be without power this lunchtime as a result of Strom Emma.

In Gaoth Dobhair, 128 customers remain without power. It is hoped that the power will be restored shortly before 3pm this evening.

Over one hundred customers in Ballyliffin are also left without power and it is hoped that power will be restored to them before 7pm this evening.

Both outages are due to faults in the area.

This morning 1,224 homes and premises were left without power.

Across the country, the situation is much worse with customers in Dublin, Kildare, Louth and Offaly reporting problems.

ESB crews  are currently working to repair a fault affecting the Ballyliffin and Gaoth Dobhair outages.
