Leitrim County Council unsatisfied with response regarding lengthy power cut

The response from the ESB regarding a nine-hour power outage some months ago has been labelled unsuitable by Leitrim County Council.

The matter was discussed at the last meeting of Manorhamilton Municipal District.

The council felt that the answer given regarding the lengthy power cut didn’t deal with the matter at hand correctly, as many people were displaced at the time.

It’s understood that the outage was put in place to accommodate a private afforestation company.

Speaking to Ocean FM News, Councillor Mary Bohan said no power outage should take a significant amount of time, and that more notice needs to be served.
