Posting selfies from one of Ireland’s most famous tourist hot spots has just become a whole lot easier, thanks to Alpha Wireless. Johnnie Fox’s, dubbed the highest pub in Ireland, is situated in Glencullen, on top of the Dublin mountains. It’s well known for its traditional Irish music, its award-winning food and its famous Hooley Night dinner and dancing show.
But for anyone wanting to indulge in a little tourism boasting, mobile reception has been a big problem up until now. Earlier this month, Alpha Wireless infrastructure was installed at the site, enabling mobile coverage in the area like never before. “It’s a fairly remote location and there was no coverage up there at all. The fact that it’s a huge tourist spot, it’s a great win to now be able to provide coverage,” Alpha Wireless CEO Fergal Lawlor said. “For Alpha Wireless, this was a particularly special project to be involved with.
We work on solutions to provide coverage in many remote locations across the world, but as an Ireland-based company, being part of the team that made this iconic local attraction more accessible was really great.” One of the major challenges in connecting the area was finding an antenna solution that would enable coverage but wouldn’t be a blight on the spectacular and popular landscape. “The Alpha Wireless Trisector Antenna was the perfect solution in this case as it provided the coverage that was needed without having to deploy a tower.
The trisector product was developed amid an increased desire for concealed antenna solutions and it’s exactly this type of situation that illustrates how beneficial they can be,” Lawlor said. “Ireland has some incredible remote destinations that enhanced mobile coverage would improve safety and connectivity. We’re proud to be part of doing that without detracting from the natural environment.” To find out more, check out our website alphawireless.com.
