Limerick hit by power outage

Hundreds of homes on the north side of the city were without power for a time tonight as the ESB confirmed there was a major fault with one of their lines in the area.

The company said that they had received numerous phone calls from residents particularly on the north side of the city shortly after 7.15pm. The fault is understood to have been sourced to a supply pole in the Meelick area.

A spokesperson said emergency repair crews responded quickly to the situation and power was restored at 7.40pm.

Areas affected included Caherdavin, Mayorstone, Moyross, Ballynanty and Corbally.
