It was disgusting even in the mid 1970s. It stank. If the were fish from a store and a high tide they were always dead.

It got far worse after dredging stopped. The polluted stuff - the really nasty stuff is now not washed away but way under millions of tonnes of sediment sludge, itself mostly made from sewer outlets.

You won't find that in a Ballymore brochure.

The way in which it's been cleaned up and regenerated ecologically is a great achievement.

But once that was done no time was lost in gentrifying it and turning it into a developers marketing tool.
