Last ditch meeting over Drumfries mast

Campaigners opposed to the construction of a telecommunications mast in Drumfries, Inishowen have secured a last ditch meeting with Tetra Ireland, the company responsible for the mast.

Hundreds of locals have signed a petition opposed to the mast over health and safety concerns.

There has also been calls for the planning process to be more transparent, the planning notice for the development was placed in a national newspaper and is is claimed this is why no objections were lodged.
