Before they will even start to build they will have to dig out in the region of 413,000 cubic metres of materials, i.e approx 40,000 lorries which they estimate will be completed in 3 3/4 years – per the NPHDB’s own estimates in their EIS as submitted to An Bord Pleanala. To put this in context, it is over 9 and a half times the amount of concrete used to build Croke Park. This is one of the main reasons it is so expensive -not because of increased construction costs.
Over 40,000 children just happen to be buried there-in lime- from the foundling hospital and the poor house. Don’t suppose it matters to the Irish people what land fill their remains get dumped in , as we have no nuns to blame??
