Meeting to discuss 5G technology in Carrick-on-Shannon later

Concerns over 5G technology will be discussed at a public meeting in Carrick on Shannon tonight.

Vodafone Ireland launched its 5G mobile network last week with Eir and Three expected to follow by the end of the year.

The coverage will be available in parts of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford initially with a general rollout expected over the next two years.

However, there are concerns over the technology, with 180 scientists in over 36 countries warning about it leading to an increase in exposure to electromagnetic radiation.

The meeting takes place the Bush hotel in Carrick on Shannon tonight at 8pm.

Kris Zurek is one of the organisers
