No-Fly Zone In Place Over Parts Of Laois

It's due to a military exercise taking place.

A no-fly zone will be in operation over an area of Laois this week to facilitate a military drone training exercise. 

It will have a 6km radius covering Clonaslee and a portion of the Slieve Blooms. 

The ban on private drones will begin at 8 o'clock Monday morning and last until 5 o'clock Friday evening. 

The Irish Aviation Authority are warning that anyone who breaches the no-fly zone could see their drone seized and face prosecution by Gardai.
