Latest winter storm leaves over 6,000 without power
ESB crews are working to restore outages in challenging conditions.

OVER 6,000 HOMES and businesses nationwide are without power this morning as Storm Jake makes landfall.

Over half of the outages are in the Balgaddy area of Dublin, with people in Kerry, Donegal, Galway, Tipperary, Limerick, Wicklow, Mayo and other parts of the capital also without supply.

ESB crews have been out since early this morning working to restore power across the country.

Customers have been asked to check for the latest updates.

If their power cut is not listed, they should call 1850 372999 to report it.

The outages come as four Met Éireann warnings remain in effect this morning:

  • a status orange wind alert and status yellow weather advisory covering the coastal fringes of the north, west and south
  • a status yellow wind advisory for Ireland
  • a snow-ice warning for Connacht, Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal
