Demolition of the Miag Grain Silo

Demolition of the Miag Grain Silo

Someone posted a grainy mobile phone picture of demolition work going on in the Docklands, Cork on Facebook a few days ago so I had to go down and record the event for myself.

The building being demolished is the second part of the Miag/Art Deco Silos as seen in this post.

Deco Silos
Construction on the earliest elements of the Art Deco silo complex (24), which is located further east along the South Jetties, took place circa 1935-1938. Elements of architectural interest included the staircase and fenestration of the earlier silo and the concrete screen walls to the north and south with glass block vertical glazing of the later building, which was constructed between 1947-1953. The ‘Miag’ silo was damaged by a fire in September 2006 and demolished in summer 2008 following the submission of a report on its structural safety to the City Council. Elements of the structure were salvaged for possible re-use.

I shot photos of the smoke escaping from the burning building in 2006 and Google Plus has made them into an animated GIF I shared here.

There used to be raised corridors leading from the building to the Odlums building next door, and the long raised corridor running parallel with the river but they’ve been removed already. Part of one can be see in the grounds near the building. While I was down there I approached an elderly man sitting in his car watching the activity. He lives close by and told me that as a young lad he had climbed the outside ladder to the top of the building!

There are extensive plans for the docklands and Marina area. Check this PDF for more.
