Local councillor and former Lord Mayor, Tony Fitzgerald (FF), said:
"Questions need to be answered relating to the construction of the two columns.
"On Saturday, I met the workers who informed me that the columns were to improve the signal for mobile phones.
"I contacted Cork City Council and requested information which I expect to have on Monday morning," he added. "I am very concerned and annoyed that there was no consultatiom with local residents and public reps.
"To me they don't look great and I'm concerned."
“From the information I have gotten, I gather they have been put up to improve mobile phone coverage,” he said. “To me, there has been no consultation with the local councillors or community, not even the people in Ardcullen or on Harbour View Road. People deserve to know what these things are,” he added.
