    Default Stop everything. South Dublin has a short power cut

    Quite why it needs to be in the indo is anyone's guess

    The spokesman said a sub-station fault is generally straight forward to repair and they are confident it will be resolved shortly.

    The public interest may be in the "thousands affected".

    500 homes? hardly a huge number...even 5,000 homes is not an emergency. We had a power cut in the middle of the day, lunchtime in fact. Off I went to the chemist and bought some methylated spirits, had to sign for it, and got out the trangia and made some tea and pasta for ourselves and a couple of elderly neighbours. An hour later electricity was back on.

    It's news only because it was South Dublin.

    They got a spokesman out this morning.

    I can see it now some guy in overalls on a hastily erected platform, microphones shoved in his face, flash bulbs going off a helicopter circling, someone holding up John 3:16.

    Won't some one think of the children for focks sake

    24 hour news cycle. 500 homes is still thousands of people. It could just have easily been a story about a spate of bicycle bell robberies.

    Has the UN been notified?

    Are there NGO whisking their way there as we speak?

    Somewhere in leafy Donnybrook Fionnachás had to go to school with a belly full of cold porridge.
