More than 60,000 eircom customers in Mayo were without phone landlines today due to a fault that occurred in software at the Castlebar Exchange.

Eircom repair crews have been attempting to restore the service, but a spokesperson said this afternoon that progress had been slow.

The spokesperson was unable to give an estimated time for restoration of services.

Private customers and busineses unable to use their phones - Laser Card machines not working - All while cowen is trying to Attract FDi - What a disaster! Eircom should be fined massively for this.

Did you write that subject to imply they intentionally cut Mayo off?

Could this attempt to isolate Mayo from the outside world be the start of a Flynnasty take?

Day 1: "Mayo isolated from Rest of World: Rest of World breathes sigh of relief".

Day 2: "Flynns take over Mayo: Pee - President for Life, Bev - Minister for Finance, Audrey - Minister for Transport".

Day 3: "Flynns deposed and executed".

Well Mayo did have the highest No vote in the Lisbon referendum in absolute vote number terms. Coincidence? I think not........;)

What is the point of a fine, the customer will only end up paying one way or another.
Or take their custom elsewhere? Let the shareholders can pay for it, I say.

Must warn world. Am hiding in Turlough Church Tower. Castlebar now held by Flynn Dynasty. Reports of Enda Kenny's head seen bobbing in Lough Lannagh. Linenhall Street where his office was is in flames. Bev seen rioting in Beverly Hills Boutique. Told she owned it so she shot the person who told her. Pee Flynn, no, it cannot be true, but yes, Pee Flynn has crowned himself High King of Ireland. Parish Priest has confirmed to his congregation that Mayo is now a Republic and no longer answers to Dublin. Cheers ring out from church. Then silence. "Where will our children go to get jobs", Mrs. Geraldine Dunne shouted out. Mrs. Dunne was a well-liked lady who gave her free time unstintedly to the church, and her work was much appreciated. Father Flynn, Parish Priest, sadly recalls the first time he met Mrs. Dunne, and says that he never thought he would see the day when he would have to kill her for the sake of Mayo.

I'm heading towards the Sligo Border now, with those desperate enough to make the journey. We will contact you all later, out of the five of us we are confident that one of us will make it.

And they'd still get beat in their own All Mayo football final

I think our Euro partners want us to sell more of our assets on the cheap, so reversing the stupid error of privitising Eircom won't happen. God only knows what stupidity informed the people responsible. If they sorely wanted to sell something to their business friends, the service provision could have been sold off, and the network retained in state hands to allow what was then an up to date network to remain that way. Now Eircom has an outdated network, poor prices, shrinking customer base, and debts incurred to allow various shady owners to finance this or that deal.
