Power to be returned to ESB customers affected by outage

Most of the ESB customers who lost supply overnight should have their power restored by now. Up to 600 householders in South Kerry were without electricity this morning after a lightning storm during the night. The areas affected included Farranfore, Firies, Dooks, Aghadoe and Castlemaine. Kerry Airport wasn’t affected by the outage. A spokesperson for the ESB says supply to a number of spurs has been interrupted, rather than a number of broad areas.
