Unsightly poles at Derrinturn

The Derrinturn Community Development Group has said they plan to contact ESB Networks in relation to overhead power-lines and unsightly wooden poles that are located right beside the Church in Derrinturn.

The Derrinturn Community Development Group has said they plan to contact ESB Networks in relation to overhead power-lines and unsightly wooden poles that are located right beside the Church in Derrinturn.

The decision follows comments in the Tidy Towns report 2011 where the adjudicators made negative remarks on the poles.

The development group say they cannot understand why there are three wooden poles placed side-by-side, when one pole could be sufficient to run overhead cables.

The group is also concerned about the present locations of the poles due to the close proximity of the Parish Church, a focal point in Derrinturn.
