    I'm sure it had planning up for it, did you object?

    I believe that's the new 5G telecommunications mast.

    Don't think they just decided to put it up today .i'm sure there was a planning poster up in the area and people could have objected

    Planning notice was up and meetings held but as far as I know hardly anyone attended the meetings. A view from Norwood looks absolutely dreadful & 6 houses are to be built down the little lane way next to it. I wouldn’t be buying a house there but however I’m only across the road from it. Bye Bye view of Tory hills once everything is done.

    If anyone had bothered to make a planning observation they could have asked that it be powder coated green. Have seen these in other countries and they do blend in. There is also one on the hill above the Ardree that looks like a tree.

    There's a few masts disguised as fir trees along the M50, make me smile every time I see them!
