Friends of the Irish Environment says the report raises potential dangers of contamination to the general public
Cork County Council is being urged to publish a report on Haulbowline Island Park which raises potential dangers of contamination to the general public.
Friends of the Irish Environment say that a report prepared for the Council over two years and released under the Access to Information on the Environment shows ongoing contamination of Cork Harbour from the former Irish Steel plant.
The report states that arsenic, lead and PCBs from the former steel site may be ingested by visitors to the park at the East Tip through inhalation of dust and soil until the all-island surface clean-up for the remaining 11-hectares is completed.
Speaking to RedFM News Tony Lowes of the Friends of the Irish Environment says the Council should delay the opening of the park
