Electricity back all over Clare

ESB Networks have now restored power all over the county following Hurricane Ophelia.

On Monday some 6,700 customers lost power as a result of the strong winds. At the time there were fears that people could be left without power for very long spells but those proved unfounded, and many people had electricity again within hours.

By Wednesday afternoon only 70 customers were still without electricity, and those have now had it restored.

A status yellow rainfall warning is in place for Clare, the rest of Munster and a number of Leinster counties today. There is also a status yellow warning in place for Saturday, with high winds expected, but conditions are very unlikely to be as bad as on Monday.
