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.
