All John Gormley has to do is have a word with poor old Michael Martin. Why, only in 2006, Michael announced a fantastic future for the radioactive island. Among other visions Michael had was this “This 44 acre site has the potential to be the most attractive waterside site in Europe. Haulbowline has unique attractions". I suppose radioactive soil would be unique. Don't believe me? Go to this page.
And as for ISPAT? Why their webpage is proud to boast the following; "IIL (Ispat) believes that its presence should add to the physical beauty of the surroundings of the town. Therefore, it has taken upon itself, the beautification of public spaces with the concurrence of the local administration." True, But not in Cork.
