Thousands of households in Co Kildare are without any electricity this morning.
At about 10.30am this morning houses in the Clane, Maynooth, Celbridge and Kilcock area were hit by power outages.
An ESB spokesperson said: "We have a large outage in the Kildare area, crew en-route and will work to repair as quickly and safely as possible."
It could be late afternoon by the time power is restored to homes around the county.
The ESB advises that power cuts can be reported online by inputting your MPRN and name of the registered customer http://ow.ly/reXS30b1d37 .
