DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has written to the owners of a building on O’Connell Street following complaints of a loud, high-pitched noise bothering passers-by in the area.

A high-pitched alarm sound can be heard outside a number of buildings on O’Connell Street Upper, next to the Spire.

The device, a so-called ‘mosquito alarm’, was installed by the managers of a shared office building in a bid to deter anti-social behaviour and drug dealing.

We want to know: Do you agree with the use of mosquito alarms to deter anti-social behaviour? 

Poll Results:

Yes (7505)
