Thousands of homes left without power following Storm Hannah

Ah come on now, Hannah.

The worst of Storm Hannah is over, according to Met Éireann, but her effects are still being felt in several counties.

The storm, which raised a status red warning from the national meteorological service, hit the southwest coast last night, and had a serious effect on the power lines.

According to ESB's Powercheck service, there are several clusters of power faults in the southwest counties. In the Ennistymon region alone, there are 1188 homes without power. In coastal regions of Kerry and Cork, thousands more homes have been effected.

On Twitter, ESB has confirmed that the power will be out in certain areas until as late as 8.30pm today.
