Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arigna is a village in County Roscommon, Ireland. It is near Lough Allen (on the Shannon-Erne Waterway), on a designated "scenic route" between Keadue and Sliabh an Iarainn (Irish/Gaelic for "Iron Mountain"). Arigna Coal Mine is (in-)famous for its very shallow deposits. Seams of 45 cm were worked by miners lying on their sides to shovel the coal out. Mining lasted until 1990, and the coal was used for iron works and later for a power plant. With the demolition of the ESB Generating Station chimney, the era of collieries in the area ended.show more
