Power out for 1800 ESB customers around Kinnegad and Clonard

As the severe storm continues to rage across the country, the ESB has revealed that around 1800 customers in the Kinnegad and Clonard areas are without electricity at present.

Nationally, there are around 35,000 customers without power, and the severe weather alert issued yesterday remains in force until 5 pm today.

Said the ESB this lunchtime:

"We hope to restore supply to all customers today, however some damage may require more extensive construction work to be carried out and we are assessing the situation and will give further updates later. 

"We will also be re-deploying crews from areas less affected to help those locations experiencing  more extensive damage."
