Looks like it's being reprieved for another couple of years.

Whilst complaining about the weather may be a British thing, I suppose that the vagaries of the Atlantic system are a bit more hard-hitting on that side of the Irish Sea too!

I imagine that high up a mast, you get very good indeed at recognising the wrong sort of cloud from many miles away.

They won't be dropping this mast (I hope! ) being a mast-radiator. Looks like there's work on the antenna system though, from the blurb. Weather-wise, what appears calm on the ground might not be so calm aloft. Rigging winch bonds and platforms and all that jazz eats into outage time.

Maybe ground radials need repairing / replacing too?
