Parts of Co Clare remain without power as the clean-up from Storm Hannah continues.

Throughout Friday night and the early hours of Saturday morning, Clare Fire Services dealt with more than 70 incidents across the county. This involved removing fallen trees and debris to make roads passable and safe for motorists. Emergency services also responded to separate callouts for a chimney fire and CO alarm.

Council crews from all Municipal Districts will be working all day on Saturday to clear the remaining fallen trees and debris. Motorists are advised to drive with caution on roads this weekend.
