'A few thousand’ ESB Network customers remain without power this morning as the clean up following Storm Betty continues.
ESB Spokesperson Paul Hand said people in North Dublin are “particularly affected” by power outages caused by Storm Betty.
“[Crews] mobilised from first light this morning and expecting to get all remaining customers back over course of morning,” he said.
“Estimated restore times are on Powercheck.ie and indications are that most customers will have their power restored by lunchtime.”
Data from Powercheck.ie suggests estimated restore times range from 12pm to 6pm today.
Some 70,000 ESB customers were without power over the course of the weekend following Storm Betty.
Many have also reported heavy flooding and road damage, particularly along the coast.
In Cork, there was flooding in Carrigaline, Dunmanway and Roches Point, while trees fell in Allihies and Castletownbere in West Cork.
Michael Collins TD said there was “huge amounts of water” in several areas.
“It was quite dangerous,” he said. “It caused quite a lot of flooding in areas and road closures.
“The sad thing is looking at many of the road closures yesterday and talking to neighbours, it’s the same roads that continue to get flooded for the last five, 10, 20 years.
“A lack of investment on these roads have meant they are quite dangerous when we have excessive rainfall.”
