A plan by Eir to build an 18-metre telecommunications mast has divided the seaside village of Rosslare Strand where some residents welcome the prospect of faster broadband and improved phone reception while others fear the proposed structure will be an eyesore bringing negative health effects from electromagnetic radiation fields.

Eir has lodged an application with Wexford County Council to construct a mast at an existing exchange on Station Road, on the main approach to the village, close to housing estates, where there has been an established communications installation for over 20 years.
