A Leixlip parents remains concerned over class sizes in Scoil San Carlo in Leixlip has kept his young son out of Scoil San Carlo junior school out of concern for the effects of nearby communications masts.

Aidan Jordan, who has a number of children at the school, has been campaigning to over high class sizes at the school, learned about the mast issue during his researches.

On Monday, he told the Leader that information he got about tests down in January left him concerned, as his 7 year old son Aidan was located in a room very near to the masts

He said his youngest son was placed in a room in the San Carlo junior which is closest to at mast located on River Forest Hotel.

Mr. Jordan said a report he got Dr. Karl Moore (www.emfsafespace.ie) regarding some testing he did at Scoil San Carlo in January concerned him “All the levels of radiation taken were acceptable by EU standards but not by several countries who have made it illegal for masts to be placed within proximity of a school or public building.The 3 masts on the outside of the River Forest hotel are according to many radiation experts worldwide, damaging the children and staff at Scoil San Carlo and all the people working and staying in the River Forest Hotel.

Mr. Jordan said he and other parents have met school authorities over the issue and have asked for classrooms to be moved.
