Around 7,000 homes and businesses are without power this morning after Storm Atiyah, with parts of the southwest among the worst affected.

The weather warnings have been lifted and a major clean up is expected due to fallen trees and debris, but Clare appears to have escaped the worst of the storm with no reports of any serious damage.

ESB Networks says its crews are working to restore power to affected areas as soon as possible, including in Ennistymon and Dumquin in Clare, where 118 homes and businesses are without supply.


Motorists are urged to drive with care, but Gardaí report no issues on the county’s roads.
