ELECTRICITY should be restored to all homes in County Clare by the end of the day, according to the ESB. Power outages occurred in many areas, as a result of the storm-force winds of recent days.
Throughout the West and South-West, ESB repair crew had a very busy few days dealing with power lines brought down by falling trees and damage to high voltage lines.
In the Ennis area, as many as 200 houses were without electricity up to Sunday afternoon, while pockets of other parts of the county were also affected.
Met Éireann’s forecast is for continued bad weather with a warning to motorists to watch out for ice on roads, especially minor roads, in the event of temperatures dropping below freezing on wet surfaces.
