Works are continuing this evening to restore power to households, farms and businesses in Tipperary.
Around 600 customers in the county remain without power after stormy weather in recent days, with the bulk of the major outages in west Tipperary.
It’s hoped that power will be restored to about 350 of those tonight.
Local Storm Manager at ESB, Declan Sheehan says that at its worst on Thursday morning, there were 17,000 customers without power in the county.
He says that they’re receiving lots of help from around the country, but says some may still be without power into tomorrow. He’s also warning people to remain vigilant to the threat of fallen wires, and to report issues to their emergency line – 1850 372 999.
He’s also thanked the public for their assistance in recent days, as well as crews from across the country which have helped the ESB with their repairs since Storm Ellen.
