  • Irish Steel Mill

    According to this link:

    http://www.unison.ie/irish_independe...issue_id=12878

    "ONE of Ireland's worst industrial eyesores" is to be demolished and redeveloped (Anyone got pics? Just how bad is it??).

    It also states that

    "The demolition is a key element of the government plan to restore Haulbowline Island so it can be redeveloped for commercial or leisure purposes."

    Will this have any impact on the Navy?
    Meh.

    Good riddence to it and all the crap it use to pump into the air around the harbour .
    I often wondered about the quality of the air being drawn into the ship when berted at the Base because of it .

    So what sort of leisure or comercial purpose can we expect ? , anyone any ideas ?
    Don't spit in my Bouillabaisse .

          On the base there is a white building just under the mast- whats that used for, is it akin to a control tower
          Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
          Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
          The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
          The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
          The best lack all conviction, while the worst
          Are full of passionate intensity.

                  what about the rumours of extremely bad stuff buried under the bridge to the base in tunnels. Some say radioactive. There's all sorts of rumours bout tunnels and the like.

                    The white building is the VS tower.

                        Worth pointing out that the lovely Limestone Key wall beneath the Flying Crane in that photo has recently been dredged to make room for any future large ship, and the NS has taken over that part of the Quay. Thats all they want though. They have no interest in the rest of the land.

                        The Slagheap east of the basin is also to be cleaned up,and returned to greenfield site. And Mittal won't be paying one single cent towards it.

                              The mid section of the bridge sits on a small island which use to be a Magazine during the Royal Navy days , the entrance to the Magazine could still be seen when I served way back . Not too sure about nasty stuff being buired inside though .
