A new nuclear power station is proposed at Moorside near Sellafield, as well as at Hinkley Pt. Our map distance estimate is based on “Windscale fallout underestimated“, by Rebecca Morelle-BBC News, 6 October 2007, where one finds a rare map of the Windscale fallout plume: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7030536.stm and the Chernobyl fallout plume, which seems have traveled about the same distance.

“And now for the next chapter! Ireland and Sellafield!
Posted on October 9, 2016 by arclight2011part2
There is something really fishy about the Sellafield meetings in Ireland (Due in the next week approx). The Irish Government did not join other boundary/downwind countries around the UK in a recent ESPOO (Cross boundary contamination from nuclear sites) Convention statement in connection with the Hinkley nuclear power plant plans in the UK . Has the Irish government been lobbied by proven UK nuclear lobby “liars” and “Spin merchants” (the Sellafield management and attendees of the UK Parliamentary Committee 2014)?
Friends of the Earth Ireland have written a damming critique of the use of the UK biased contamination Plume projections and respected nuclear expert John Large has stated that a radioactive plume could reach some 150 km (or more), thereby, destroying the good name Irish Agriculture has earned itself worldwide. Also, such an accident would destroy the lucrative Japanese market for clean Irish Seaweed (Post Fukushima).
In a recent spate of to and fro, between the nuclear lobbies experts and the Independent experts, it appears that the main spokesperson for radiation dose and health (Prof, Geraldine Thomas – currently touring Australia) has been slammed by Prof. Keith Baverstock (Ex World Health Organisation) in Fissionline #45, a few months ago and her Fukushima claims were debunked and the BBC reluctantly took the offending and embarrassing video of her in the Fukushima exclusion zone in March 2016 down).
Also, The pro nuclear lobby are desperately trying to increase the allowable annual dose so as to mitigate the thousands of contaminated areas in many countries from excessive claims against health and environmental damage. From 1 mSv/y to an incredible 100mSv/y!! Watch this space!
The Irish government has all these facts as some were widely distributed in the media and others have already been mentioned by the stakeholders. Does Dublin deserve such a massive risk on its doorstep, some quarter of the population in the Republic at risk within hours?
Will the 1 million odd people in Dublin have access to Iodine supplements? The UK nuclear lobby would state that there is no risk!…. Just like the Japanese said before Fukushima Some 300 odd billion Euros are being used in only the first phase of the so called clean up. Compensation claims to residents and business are pitiful in the most part and there is still 100,000 internally displaced refugees from the nuclear accident areas.
It is likely that health effects are kept quiet because of non disclosure agreements that are signed prior to getting money for hospital treatment etc but the new Secrets Act also threatens imprisonment to any one disclosing information about Fukushima and related health issues (especially Doctors and health professionals)
Be wary Ireland! There are wolves at the door! Say NO to Sellafield !! and share this with your friends (especially if they live on the East coast of Ireland or 100 Km inland from there) .

I think Irish gov apathy is partly or maybe even totally related to the grid connections, first with the UK and Dublin and then with Cork and France underway. That makes Ireland dependent upon nuclear France, as well as Britain whose reactors are owned by nuclear France. Also, as you observe, contaminated Irish Sea is contaminated seafood, but even contaminated Dublin. The fish and seafood (and seaweed) would have been an issue when the Irish gov objected in the past. So, I think it must be the grid. They haven’t invested adequately in renewables and one can only burn so much peat moss.
