ESB Networks has said it has restored electricity to all but about fifty customers whose supply was affected by Storm Doris.

More than 57,000 households have now had their power restored since Wednesday night.

About 20 homes near Carrick-on-Shannon are expected to remain without power overnight - with the rest in isolated pockets throughout the country.

Repairs crews have now been working for two days, dealing with the havoc caused by the Storm.

A company spokesperson said repair crews remain on standby and expect to have all faults repaired by tomorrow.

Customers without power can check for updates on when their supply is expected to be restored at the PowerCheck website.

For faults that are not appearing on Powercheck, customers are asked to log a fault at ESB Networks or call 1850 372 999 or +353-21-2382410.
