Animal owners alert for low flying aircraft over North West

A geological mapping project collecting geophysical and geochemical data over counties Mayo and Donegal is set to take place in early March.

The project involves low flying aircraft equipped with state of the art geophysical technology and will be based at Sligo airport.

The project is expected to take a number of months to complete and will involve the plane flying at altitudes as low as 60 metres in come places.

Pet, horse and livestock owners are being alerted to the airborne activity and Emma Scanlon from the Tellus project team told Ocean FM what they can do if they have any concerns.
