Another ghastly erection foiled in Donegal

Phone mast saga continues

At 6am on Wednesday the 28th of July a Garda 'Paddy wagon' accompanied a patrol car, 9 jeeps and a 30 foot trailer to the site of a longstanding standoff over the
Tamur mobile phone mast.
and capitalism came falling down...
and capitalism came falling down...

Locals got wind of the sneaky tactics, designed to reinstall an O2 mobile phone mast, and blockaded both entrances to the site in question.

Mobile phone company 02 have twice been refused planning permission for the mast because of local health and environment factors. However, after much campaigning and absolutely no consultation, the mast was erected following approval by An Bord Plenala.

Soon after its erection the mast mysteriously was pulled down soon and this blockade
signals the latest in a controversy where locals refuse to bow to invisible profiteers
and their local helpers.
