winds Ireland
There are still several hundred homes and businesses in Co Kildare without electricity following Storm Barney. However the ESB said it may be tea-time tomorrow before power is fully restored to everybody. According to the Powercheck app, there are 630 in the dark in the Kilcullen area. There are more than 200 without power in parts of Naas including Monread, Swordlestown and Togher's Business Park in Newhall. A small number in Athgarvan are also without power. Many roads where trees or branches had fallen have now been cleared and are passable again.
