Residents in Mooncoin, South Kilkenny mount campaign against telecommunications mast

A group discussion will take place later today on the issue

Mooncoin residents are mounting a campaign against a telecommunications mast.

An 18-metre high Eircom communications mast has been given planning permission right in the middle of the village by An Bord Pleanála.

The site on Chapel Street beside the graveyard had previously been rejected by Kilkenny County Council.

Nicola Foley says those in the area need to band together to stop this from going ahead and a group discussion’s set to take place this evening.
