800 Dublin homes without power
Around 800 people in Dublin City centre have been affected by major power outages tonight.
ESB staff are on site fixing the problem that includes the Bedford Row,Templebar and Drumcondra areas.
ESB said it hoped to resolve the issue shortly.
In the meantime, audience members at the Olympia Theatre, on Dame Street, have taken to Twitter to report that they are left sitting in the dark before tonight's performance.
Anyone know the likelihood of the Olympia getting their power back up for @EdwardSharpe? :-(— Rebecca Meehan (@rebeccameehan) February 8, 2014
Update 9.30pm: Power has now been restored to most of the affected homes.
