Around 400 homes are again affected due to ESB outages in Listowel today. The company is rebuilding lines in the area at a cost of three million euro. All work is expected to be completed by January. Residents in Listowel have been complaining about the number of outages in the town during the month of December and about the mess made by private contractors during the course of their work. The ESB says they try and carry out work at a time that suits customers in the area, however work must go ahead regardless of the time of the year.
