An exterior view of the NET plant at Marino Point in Cobh, County Cork, in June 1980. NET (Nítrigin Éireann Teoranta) was a state-owned fertiliser manufacturer; it later became Irish Fertiliser Industries before being wound up in 2002.
This shot was taken during the filming of RTÉ Television's 'A Future in Mind', an eight-part series in which young people employed in the growth areas of Irish industry talked about their work. NET was one of the companies featured on the programme broadcast on 21 October 1980, which focused on the chemical, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. The RTÉ Guide previewed the entire series on 10 October 1980.
