AROUND 300 homes and businesses in West Limerick have been left without power this Friday morning following a fault.

According to the electricity operator, it’s estimated that power will be restored at 5pm.

A spokesperson for ESB Networks said: “Commencing at approximately 05.06am, the fault resulted in a loss of supply to approximately 300 customers.
