Telegraph Pole of the Month - March 2011

Telegraph Pole of the Month, March 2011

Telecom Eireann engineers have come up with a novel way of getting around the budget cuts within the Irish GPO - simply don't bother with the lower half of their telegraph poles.  No hole to dig, only half the wood used and technically no need to pay the wayleave ground rent either.

This photo taken along the R181 somewhere near Castleblayney in central Ireland.  Part of me says I should have saved this photo for April.
