Plans for new mast and telecommunications equipment in County Cavan

There are plans for a new mast and telecommunications equipment in County Cavan.

Cignal Infrastructure Limited has applied for planning permission for the structure on Slieve Glah in the Carrickaboy area.

A 54 metre mast is already located on the mountain.

The company has applied to build a new 30 metre mast and move the existing communications equipment to it.

It would then place new equipment on the existing mast including 12 communications dishes and three antennas.

Cignal Infrastructure says the development will provide voice and mobile broadband services.

A decision on the development is expected in early September.
