Arigna Coal Mine (Ireland)

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.
