The Northern Ireland Environment Agency carried out an inventory of potentially contaminated land and have stated in 2011 that they have indentified a number in excess of 14,000 sites. This number was revised upwards from 12,000 in 2009. Mulroy Environmental carried out an \'in-house\' inventory of key industrial sectors. This in-house inventory suggests that the NIEA contaminated land database number is correct. As such, it is likely that the Rep. of Ireland has over twice the number of potentially contaminated sites as that of Northern Ireland i.e. >30,000.
