Backing for Dublin Rafting Project from Sport Groups & Tourism

February 12, 2021

The planned White Water Rafting Centre in Dublin has won the support of tourism and sporting organisations as the city council prepares to make a new funding application for the controversial project.

The council has already asked for expressions of interest for the €25 million project which is planned for Georges Dock in the IFSC.

Both Sport Ireland and the Olympic Federation of Ireland say they will support a funding application as it would offer the country’s only training facility for the Olympic sport of canoe slalom.

Fáilte Ireland also said it will support the development as it will “add to the range of things to see and do in Dublin Docklands and has the potential to become a motivating visitor experiences playing an important role in encouraging visitors to stay longer in the area”.
