Press photo-Griunard Island

Came across this 1967 edition of the Mail on Sunday magazine. Had a short article referring to the island of Gruinard Island being contaminated for at least a 100 years

They cleaned it up in the late 1980’s/90’s. But you never can say never??

  1. thanks Dara – amazing to see that photo is by Jurgen Schadeburg, a south african photographer more associated with b/w work on apartheid. he was over in Dublin at Gallery of Photography a good while back, but clearly he had been up to our part of the world long before.
