Objection to 'eyesore' mast proposal in scenic Mayo village

EIRCOM has sought planning approval for the construction of an 18-metre free standing communications structure with associated antennae, communication dishes and ground equipment in Ballycastle.

The proposed location is the Eircom exchange at Main Street in the town.

To date, one objection to the development is on file with council planners.

The observation outlined strong objection to the structure's location, stating: "Surely there are other locations within the area that would be suitable and not an eyesore in the middle of our lovely village."

Meanwhile, the company has also submitted plans for a telecommunications mast in Ballyglass, Claremorris.

The company proposes to construct a 21-metre high free standing communications structure, with associated antennae, communication dishes and ground equipment, as part of the company's existing telecommunications and broadband network.

The development address is the Eircom exchange, Carrowreaghmony, Ballyglass.
