I’d be a bit worried about those dust clouds!! Wouldn’t they potentially contain a lot of heavy metals and other weird chemicals in the form of soot that had built up in the furnace?

It was an absolutely hideous building though and a terrible source of pollution. I would say the exact same for IFI an utter disgrace of an operation. I remember being in Fota wildlife park and being overcome by an accidental release of amonia while they were filling some tank.

The biotech and pharma industry around the harbour is pretty much squeeky clean in comparison.

What I find even worse about both IFI and Irish Steel is that they were also both semi-state companies for most of their lives and certainly at the time that they were built.

I’m very glad to see the back of Irish steel anyway 🙂
