The Irish Independent
Plans for the demolition of high-rise Ballymun towers have been completed. The four, eight and 15-storey concrete structures erected in the mid-1960s will be reduced to rubble, starting this summer. The first of the seven infamous towers to be levelled will be the Thomas McDonagh complex, which is to be dismantled layer by layer. Following that, Pearse tower, is to be blown up early next year by UK experts, Controlled Demolition Group Ltd.
