CREWS FROM THE Electricity Supply Board (ESB) were working until 3am this morning to try and reconnect the electricity supply to more than 800 homes in Offaly and Galway.

Speaking to TheJournal.ie, a spokesperson for the ESB said that the “mini-tornado” yesterday in Clonfert had caused a lot of damage, as did the weather last night.

Reconnection

She said 800 homes were affected last night, but that “crews worked through the night to reconnect people”.

She said that there was a lot of damage done to lines from flying debris such as branches, adding that there were still “small faults across the line” at present.

Approximately 150 homes are still without electricity in the Banagher area in County Offaly, she said.
