ESB cancels planned power outages for Limerick amid anticipated poor weather

ESB Networks has said that all planned outages for Limerick this week have been cancelled amid the anticipated poor weather conditions.

A spokesperson confirmed that, due to the adverse Met Éireann weather forecast for the coming days, all planned outages have been postponed for tomorrow Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

"A number of ESB Networks customers in the Newcastle West and Raheen areas were due to be impacted by these planned outages, and will be advised on new dates for these planned outages when the essential maintenance on the network is rescheduled," said the spokesperson.

State agencies in Limerick are on standby ahead of the expected freezing temperatures this week, with Limerick City and County Council convening its Severe Weather Assessment Team.

Met Éireann has issued number of weather alerts warning of temperatures up to 10 degrees below normal for this time of year.
