Woodies out by the Kinsale Rd Roundabout sell surge protecting 4 gang
extensions for about £30. Dunno if they are any good but they are
advertised as protecting hi-fi and computer equipment. If you want to pay a
bit more - I have a fairly high-end hi-fi that I protect using a surge
protector and RF filtering box by a company called DNM but you would
probably be cheaper buying 10 spare modems..
