Eircom crews will work through the weekend to repair faults to over 200 Meath homes and businesses who have been without telephone or broadband services following the severe weather earlier this week.
The areas of Meath worst affected by the recent bad weather include - Lobinstown, Kildalkey and Dunboyne.
All available technicians have been diverted onto fault repairs and crews will continue to carry out repair work throughout the weekend.
A spokesperson said they were making every possible effort to restore service to customers who are currently experiencing a disruption to their telephone and broadband service.
Customers are reminded, where possible, to log faults on the "Log a Fault" section of their website (www.eircom.ie/logafault) or through our automated customer service line 1901. Faults can be reported to either service 24 hours a day, seven days week.
Nationally there are currently over 5,800 reported faults, with more than 3,000 faults reported on foot of the extensive lightning storms on Wednesday night. Both broadband and telephone services are impacted.
Eircom crews continue to work nationwide to reach customers without service. On Thursday more than 1,700 customers had service restored. Since Monday more than 6,500 faults have been repaired.
