Two Greystones sisters are fearful they will be unable to cope if the anticipated power outages go ahead as planned this winter as they rely on various devices powered by electricity to stay alive.

Wicklow disability activist and campaigner, Dr Margaret Kennedy, and her twin sister Anna will be 70 this November. The sisters have a muscular degenerative disease and at present, with the help of an assistant, live in an electricity dependent home.
