ESB hopes power can be restored to Gola Island next week

Around 18 houses on Gola Island are without power after the underwater ESB line connecting the island to the national grid was damaged.

The ESB says it will be next week before the line can be repaired, in the meantime, those on the island are depending on generators.

Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig says the ESB workers are doing their best to complete what is a very difficult repair job..........
