Which is the tallest construction of Ireland?

Which is the tallest construction of Ireland? Is it the radio mast of the longwave transmitter Clarkestown, which is used for broadcasting on 252 kHz?

Mast of longwave transmitter Clarkestown, height: 248 metres

That mast is the tallest structure in the country, but the tallest unstayed structures are the two 225m chimneys of Moneypoint Power Station.

Nope - that's Poolbeg Power Station, and they're presumably the second tallest unstayed structures at 207m each. They look strangely unimpressive from space:
