Getting Ready For Autumn & Winter

They’re talking about summer having one last hoorah by the end of August, but let’s be honest – autumn is already here. Seems like this might be the right time to issue a reminder that there are local services that you can call on to help you prepare for the darker nights, and to share other useful contacts for the seasons ahead.

Local Services

Looking for an electrician? Colin Walsh Electrical and Ledwith Electrical are two local businesses that can help with lighting up your home this winter. They can also give your electrics the once over to make sure everything is in order, and repair any nagging faults before things get out of hand.

Make sure your car is winter ready by dropping in to Gaffney Car Sales & Repairs. Tyre checks, full serving and valet services available – and if you’re looking for a newer car, Seamus can help with that too.

Reduce your risk of a chimney fire by calling KL Chimney Cleaning Services! We all love an open fire, but it is recommended that you get your chimney cleaned at least once a year to remove those flammable soot deposits.

Topline McCormacks will have all your heating essentials from fireside accessories to solid fuels. And if you need a top-up of kerosene, call down to Williams Daybreak.

To save anyone asking, I do not currently have any plumbers on my books.

Power Supply Failures

Please call ESB Networks on 1850 372 999 to report a service interruption. It would be helpful if you have your MPRN number to hand when calling – you will find this on your latest bill. You can also visit to view details of any known local outages.

Street Lights

If the pole has a number, make a note of it and log the fault at

Water Supply Faults / Leaks

Please report leaks on public property – including footpaths, roads, communal open spaces and public recreational facilities – to Irish Water on 1850 278 278.
