5G protests planned for Council offices in Sligo & Leitrim

Member of the ‘Stop 5G’  groups are to protest outside of Sligo County Council Offices and the offices of Leitrim County Council in Carrick-on-Shannon this morning.


The protests are planned to coincide with the September meetings of Sligo and Leitrim County Councils.


A number of issues have been raised over the last number of months in relation to the installation of masts in the region.


The group say there is not enough information available on the possible negative health affects having the masts so close to residential areas, schools and crèches.


Chairperson of the Stop 5G Enniscrone committee, Michael Moyles, says people are not necessarily against the implementation of 5G.


Speaking to Ocean FM News, he says residents want more time to make sure the technology is safe.
