Power cuts affect households in Edenderry

Storm Emma is arriving

Power cuts affect households in Edenderry

Around 55 households in Edenderry are experiencing a power cut this Thursday evening ahead of the arrival of Storm Emma overnight. 

The fault has resulted in 55 homes in the St. Mary's Road/Killane Cross area of the town. 

The ESB has told us that crews are out and about across the country but that repair efforts are being hampered by road conditions and blizzard like weather.

Offaly County Council stopped treating and ploughing roads at around 1pm on Thursday and will not commence this work until Friday.  

The ESB apologised for the inconvenience caused by the Edenderry outage and the current estimated restoration time is 8pm on Friday. Repairs may well take place before that time.
