2,600 Dublin homes hit by 90-minute power outage
The ESB says a cable fault in the Loughlinstown area meant just over 2,600 homes were without power this evening.

THE ESB says just over 2,600 homes in south Dublin were without electricity this evening for about 90 minutes due to a network fault.

The disruption began shortly after 7:30pm, and affected customers in Killiney and nearby areas.

A spokesman said engineers had identified a cable fault at a sub-station, and had been able to restore power to almost all of the homes by 9:05pm, with the remainder due to have power restored shortly after that time.
