Power supplies were restored earlier this afternoon on Achill Island.

About 200 customers in Achill had been without electricity since about 9.30 this morning due to a fault, but supply was restored around lunchtime.

 

About 1700 customers in the Swinford and Foxford areas were without power for a time this morning also, but it's believed the fault was repaired within 15 minutes.

A spokesperson for ESB Networks told Midwest News that wildlife interference with power lines was to blame for both outages.
