The Scrap Factory, Co.Limerick – January 2014

Unfortunately I can’t dig up too much information on this factory. It shut down in approximately 2003 going by the calendars in the complex. Since then it seems that large parts of the complex have been systematically torn down for scrap by the owner. One entire wall of the main factory is now missing, along with the majority of the floors and the old silos which once stood beside the factory.

Due to the amount of the factory which has been torn down the building seems quite unstable. The only remaining floor (apart from a small stone platform on the 2nd floor) is a wooden plywood floor 6-7 stories up right at the top of the factory. There are holes all over the place and the plywood doesn’t seem the sturdiest so we had to be careful of where we were treading up here.

Other than the main factory there were also several outbuildings. Most were empty but one of the outbuildings contained an old lab. The complex in all was quite trashed so it’s unfortunate that we did not get to see if before the main building started being torn apart for scrap, nonetheless it was still a fun explore.
