ESB still working to restore power to 1,000 Galway homes and businesses

Galway Daily news Storm Isha: Over 6,000 properties without power in Galway this morning

The ESB are still carrying out repairs to power outages affecting just over 1,000 homes and businesses in Galway.

There remain multiple power outages across South Galway days after Storm Debi brough extremely damaging winds to the west coast of Ireland.

The majority of these power outages are located along the southwest coast of Galway between Oranmore and Kinvara.

However there are also just over 300 homes and businesses which remain without electricity further inland in the Athenry area.

Galway suffered some of the worst damage in the country from Storm Debi on Monday, with multiple coastal areas hit by severe flooding.

Humanitarian relief was made available to Galway householders in the aftermath of the storm.

It was also announced on Tuesday that emergency business flooding schemes were being extended to Galway businesses, sports clubs, and community organisations which suffered damage from the storm.
