One of the conditions of the EU compensation plan was that the Carlow factory had to be brought back to a green field site. John O’Donovan in this last programme of the ‘Oh Sugar, Sugar’ documentary series takes us through the processes involved in selling the equipment, stocks and treating the site. Now that it has all been demolished is there any possibility of its resurrection? Michael Hoey from Beet Ireland gives an account of the report he made into its re-establishment in Ireland.
‘Oh Sugar, Sugar’ was made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the television license fee and sponsored by the Sugar Factory Display at Carlow County Museum and the local studies section at Carlow’s Central Library
