Demolition of Ballymun tower
05 June 2005 11:09
A Dublin landmark, McDonagh Tower in Ballymun, is being demolished by controlled explosion this morning.
The tower on Ballymun’s main street has 15 storeys and once contained 90 flats.
The demolition was due to take place at 11am today as part of the regeneration of the area. The tower will be replaced by a civic plaza.
Nine blocks of flats have already been taken down in Ballymun under the regeneration scheme, which will see 5,000 new homes built in the area. Ends
Did anyone see the demolition?
