January 7, 2019

Council facility aims to attract kayakers, fire brigade, water polo players and tourists

A €12 million white-water rafting amenity, a water polo and kayaking pool, and a “swift water” rescue training facility are to be installed at George’s Dock under plans from City Council.

City councillors will on Tuesday be presented with plans to convert the early 19th century dock, which sits between the IFSC and the CHQ building next to the river Liffey on the north quays, into an “elite” and amateur sports and recreation facility as well as a rescue training centre for Dublin Fire Brigade.
