Reply To: Pearse Tower to be demolished July 10 at 12 noon
After the presence of asbestos threatened serious delays, half of the blocks are now considered safe to dismantle. They will not come down in dramatic detonations, but be gradually eaten away over a few weeks. The small chunks of debris will be ground down and re-used. The new Ballymun will be built, in part, from the bones of the old.
