Black LungWhen you think of coal mining Ireland does not immediately spring to mind. The iconic images of the English and Welsh miners with coal-creased faces are the ones that dominate the collective consciousness. Just north of Kilkenny town lies Castlecomer, simply know as Comer to its inhabitant's. The mines in Comer have been flooded since 1969 but the miners left there mark on the land and it in turn left its mark on them. It can be heard in their whistling breath. Commonly referred to as 'Black Lung' it is caused by coal dust building up in the lungs. It kills the good lung tissue till eventually the lungs become completely blocked and they can no longer function.
