Power Restored After Major Outage Affecting North Wicklow And South Dublin

The ESB says power has been restored to 12,000 premises  in North Wicklow and South Dublin after an outage early yesterday evening.

The disruption from around 7 o’clock until 10 o’clock last night,  affected homes and businesses from Shankill to Kilcoole.

A spokesperson for the ESB  says the outage was traced to a fault at an ESB substation in the Fasaaroe area of Bray, while there was also a related problem with a high-voltage cable in the same area.
