Decayed pole replaced

D'you remember when we used to call them 'telegraph poles'? writes Brian Byrne. Well, they have a finite life, and this one was being replaced in Kilcullen this morning.

It had been flagged as an 'emergency' replacement, because it had decayed and potentially posed some danger.

The life of these wooden poles is up to 35 years, and if you're interested in them each has a date carved in which denotes the year it was placed.

There's a project there for someone with an interest in Kilcullen's infrastructural history.
