1000 homes and busineses hit by Omagh power black-out

ALMOST 1000 homes and businesses have been affected by today’s power cut in Omagh.

A number of businesses were forced to close down for a period after the electricity supply was disrupted for several hours.

The problems are also leading to traffic delays on what is usually the busiest time of the week for shopping.


Omagh town Sinn Fein councillor, Barry McElduff, says he has been in contact with the PSNI and the Department for Infrastructure to implement a traffic management system for Friday afternoon.

He also called on Northern Ireland Electricity to keep customers informed of when there is disruption to supply.
