LATEST: Power returns to 8,000 Kilkenny homes hit by Storm Diana

UP to 8,000 homes, farms and businesses in Kilkenny were left without power as a result of Storm Diana.

ESB Networks this morning reported there were no service interruptions in the county after crews battled to restore power throughout the night.

Kilkenny, along with Kildare and Cork, was the worst affected county in the country yesterday. Coastal counties avoided major damage as the storm proved less destructive than initially feared with a status orange warning in place.

Meanwhile, just as the threat from Diana receded, Met Éireann warned a second Atlantic storm is expected to hit within 24 hours. While it has the potential to generate damaging wind gusts, the worst of the weather is expected to make landfall over southern England.

Today is going to be another wet and windy day with Met Eireann warning of possible hail or thunder showers.

Heavy rain will batter Kilkenny and east of Ireland this morning, but it should clear up heading into the afternoon.

Met Éireann said: “This morning rain in the east will clear and elsewhere there will be scattered heavy showers with some sunny spells.

“The showers will become more widespread during the afternoon with the risk of hail or thunder, especially in the west.”

Temperatures will drop tonight, plummeting to as low as 4C.

The national forecaster said tomorrow will be a bit sunnier, but cooler with strong winds.
