Forty-three customers are without power tonight in the Clonroche area and ESB Networks estimate it may be 10.45am tomorrow before service is fully restored. The fault was first reported at 10.40pm.
Earlier tonight 97 premises in the Mulgannon district of Wexford town were without power as crews from ESB Networks worked to repair two separate faults.
A fault reported at 6.43 pm is affecting 15 customers and it is hoped to have power restored at 11.30pm.
A second fault in the same area of Wexford town was notified to ESB at 9pm and the estimated time for return of power is 12.45 am. Crews are working on the outage which affects 82 customers.
Earlier today ESB Networks warned its customers of “possible disruption to the electricity supply” tonight and into tomorrow due to strong winds and heavy rain from Storm Ellen as it passes over the country.
Information on social media tonight is warning roadusers of fallen trees on the road from Killinick to Our Lady’s Island.
