Progress made on restoring power across Shannonside region

Progress is being made on restoring power to homes and businesses in the Shannonside region this afternoon, with around 600 people still without power this lunchtime.

Just over 1,100 people in total were still without power for a third day this morning with the worst affected areas involving the Mohill and Arigna areas, as well as west Roscommon where a total of around 230 people were without power in scattered pockets.

As of this lunchtime there are around 200 people waiting to be reconnected din the Ballaghaderreen, Castlebaldwin, Tulsk and Frenchpark areas.


There are also just over 200 homes still without power in the Arigna, Mohill and Keshcarrigan areas and just over 31 in the Edgeworthstown south Longford area.

ESB Operations Manager Derek Hynes says they hope to have 99% of people in the region reconnected by this evening.
