ESB Networks restored supply to approximately 6,700 customers in the west and north west during the 9 hour period that Storm Dylan battered Ireland.
They report minimal impact on the electricity network.
As at 8am this morning, 800 customers remain without supply and ESB Networks crews continue to work to restore supply to these customers as quickly as possible.
14 Donegal homes in Creeslough/Dunfanaghy were left without power last night due to an electrical fault. ESB Networks say that they have now mended the issue.
ESB Networks have reiterated their appeal for members of the public to avoid fallen wires.
“Strong winds can cause trees and branches to fall across or bring down electricity wires. If you see any fallen wires, or trees or branches lying across electricity wires, please do not approach or touch the tree or wire.
“Please ring ESB Networks at 1850 372 999 immediately to report it,” a spokesperson says.Tags:
