Mast not wanted

Cavan-Monaghan Sinn Féin TD, Pauline Tully, has stated that plans for the erection of a telecommunication mast in Mountnugent village is not needed or wanted by many residents in the village and surrounding area.


Teachta Tully said:Pauline Tully TD - Driving Test Chaos


“Residents in Mountnugent are shocked, dismayed and concerned about plans by Eir to erect a 12metre mast in the centre of the village.


“There has been no communication or consultation with the local people.  Mountnugent is a beautiful village but if the mast is constructed it is going to totally dominate the village.


“There is already a telecommunications mast nearby which provides good coverage for the community.  Eir could request to use that mast if they need to increase coverage.


“Eir were refused planning permission for a mast on this site around 20 years ago.  They are now trying to sneakily install a mast at this location ensuring it is under the height required for planning permission.  However, the reasons the planning was refused 20 years ago still apply.  A mast 12 metres or 40 foot high will be a total eyesore in the village.


“People also have health concerns about a structure like this being so close to a residential area including a primary school.


“There is enough open space in the vicinity of the village to erect a mast which will not have an imposing affect on the village itself.


“An alternative needs to be found to this unwanted development”
