I think Cork’s docklands are more likely to be contiminated in a similiar way to other docklands e.g Dublin etc. There was never any major use of heavy metals down there.
I’d suspect there could be big issues with hydrocarbons though on the former dunlop site and some of the fuel storage areas and the power station.

It was also never (as far as I know) used to dump material.

The major risk area for heavy metal contamination in Cork is the former Irish Steel / Irish Ispat site and possibly the Ship yard at Rushbrook too.
