Power restored to majority after major Cavan outage

ESB Networks is aware of the problem.

Almost 1,600 customers were left without power in west Cavan after a major outage this morning.

ESB Networks said 1,559 people in the Killeshandra area were affected.

The fault followed widespread disruption after Storm Barra hit Ireland earlier this week. A number of large outages were reported across Cavan but the majority were quickly repaired.

ESB PowerCheck said it was alerted to this issue at 9.34am this morning.

The majority of those affected have since had their power restored. However, a small number - 47 customers - remain without electricity.

ESB Networks says it could be 1.15pm today before power is restored.
