Storm causes large power outage in south Leitrim

More than 200 homes and businesses in south Leitrim are without power this evening.

The properties are located in the Drumshanbo and Keshcarrigan areas, but ESB hopes to restore supply by 7pm.

It comes as motorists are being advised to drive with care as two weather warnings hit the country.


A status orange warning is in place for four counties in the northwest until tomorrow morning, with a yellow alert covering the rest of the country.

Met Éireann says gusts of up to 130km an hour could hit the north west, while there’s also a risk of coastal flooding.
