Councillors vote in favour of €22 million IFSC white-water rafting facility

Last night (2nd December) Councillors voted to give the go-ahead to construct the controversial new state-of-the-art facility in the city centre.

The €22m facility includes a simulated white-water slalom course and flat pool that can be used for rafting, kayaking and canoeing.

It is intended to be a major tourist attraction, but will also be used as a water rescue training facility for Dublin Fire Brigade and visiting fire brigades from around the world.

Almost two-thirds of councillors from Dublin City Council announced their support for the new plans. Construction is expected to get underway in the new year and will take between 18 months to two years to complete.
