A warning to all traffic entering Thurles, travelling westward via Kickham Street from the Dublin road area presently.
‘Storm Barney’ has taken down Electricity Supply Board (ESB) cables which presently are being treated as ‘live’ and dangerous.
The roadway has now been closed to traffic by Thurles Gardaí and members of Thurles Fire Services, latter who presently are awaiting the arrival of an ESB crew to secure the area.
Pedestrians and traffic are being asked to avoid the area for the time being and traffic entering Thurles Town from the east are being asked to turn left unto the Mill Road, or right unto Borroway before continuing onto Mitchel Street to enter the town.
ESB supplies are also gone in the Collins Park area west of Thurles.
