Electricity restored to Dublin households affected by ESB power cut

The outage was caused by a fire at one of the network’s sub-stations.

POWER HAS been restored to parts of south Dublin affected by outages this morning.

The ESB said electricity has now been fully restored to affected customers, after a fire at one of the network’s sub-stations in Leopardstown left almost 20,000 households in the dark.

Three units of the Dublin Fire Brigade responded to the alarm after it was raised at around 5:30am.

The outage affected homes and businesses in the Mount Merrion, Stillorgan and Rathfarnham areas.

Local residents tweeting this morning have thanked ESB for resolving the issue.
