Replying To royaldunne: "I actually have a relation who works in this business and has intentions of tendering for this particular aspect in pt. I asked him roughly how much. I'm obviously not gonna say what he said on a public forum but I'll tell you this it's not millions. Now it's not cheep as this can only be done by a few reputable (of which he is one) contractors in this country , it is then shipped to Scotland/Germany for safe disposal."
Something wrong here, RD appears to agree with me at last. Ah the spirit of Christmas and have a good one.
There seems to be a lot of knowledge out there about the asbestos. Maybe we should give the contract to dispose to Royaldunne and he could sub-contract it out-maybe to the Cavan man!. Disposing of it will be expensive but at this time all we can do is speculate.

It will be expensive of course and a lot of that expense will be spent on the suits having to stand and watch with clipboards but it won't cost millions that's all that's being said.
Replying To Richieq: "I remember working beside Croke Park in '99 when the old Hogan was being taken down, a hell of a lot more asbestos sheets on that roof but it was taken down sheet by sheet and wrapped in plastic in bundles of 25 sheets and shipped to Dublin Port to be buried in the polders in Holland, roof was stripped in less than a fortnight, and a well connected farmer in Limerick bought the a-frame steel supports for a fine array of sheds on his lands!! Removing the asbestos sheets in Navan would be done in days and whilst specialist companies are needed as well as inspectors on site it certainly would not come near a 7 figure sum to dispose of a roof of that size, a pity mind you they didn't replace the entire roof when the gable ends were replaced in the 90's and they could just raze through it when the time comes."
Yeah it's no where near 7 figures. About a week I'd say would remove it. The actual removal of sheet by sheet is a quick job, it's the inspection of each sheet and the inspecting of wrapping it and putting it on to freight is what slows the whole process down. Again that's according to my relation.

That's it it's the guys in the suits who don't ever touch the stuff writing on clipboards who make the money out of it. Look it's not cheep my relation is currently working down in mayo removing something a lot more difficult than the sheets in pt. Again it's the suits and ties standing around not doing any of the actual works who get the big pay. But it's not millions,
Replying To latouche25: "Just wondering how you could compare 99 with19. No comparison with health and safety."
Asbestos sheeting was widely known to be a dangerous substance if cracked or broken back then, hence why it was wrapped several times when taken down, the overseers were there on mass, health and safety involving asbestos has had strict guidelines since before '99.
