Almost 40 thousand homes are still without power after Storm Ali.

The ESB says restoration rates are slowing down because crews need to visit each fault where there are fallen power lines.

Over 500 homes and businesses in the Ninemilehourse area of Tipperary are without electricity this lunchtime.

Tipperary’s Chief Fire Officer Dave Carroll says it was particularly busy for them in the North of the County.
