Homes 'blitzed' by surge
THOUSANDS of euro worth of damage has been caused to a number of homes after they were 'blitzed' by a power surge. Gas boilers, shower units, radios, garage doors and even doorbells 'fried', according to residents.
'Our homes have been blitzed. That's just it,' Ballsgrove native Emmanuel McArdle said.
ESB networks confirmed that a fault had taken place, but they would not be compensating residents for loss as it was 'unforeseen'.
'We are in shock with all of this,' Emmanuel said.
