Dublin City Council Refused Funding For Docklands White Water Rafting Project

It's emerged Dublin city council was refused a government grant of over €6 million earlier this year, to build it's controversial white-water rafting centre.

Councillors were told half of the €22.8 million bill for the docklands project would be covered by state grants when they approved the plan last year.

The Journal.ie reports a separate application for funds was made in 2018, which was also turned down.

It comes as the council unveiled plans for a €15 million euro sea pool on the River Liffey, close to the proposed facility, last week.
