ESB emergency crews arrived in the area to carry out repairs just minutes after the outage.
It’s thought damage may have been caused to overhead cables during a lightening storm in the early hours of this morning, but that the power only failed in the past hour.
A donegaldaily.com reader told us “The power came back on just after 10.30pm. Luckily we had candles and torches.
“The worst thing is not knowing when the power was going to come back. It was very difficult to find out from anybody.”
