#Clontarf - The revived seawater baths in Clontarf opening next week will only be available to sports clubs, it has emerged.

According to RTÉ News, owners the Cullen family say the bathing area — which is slated to be ready by the end of April — will not be open to the general public due to insurance costs.

The Cullens add that they have called on Dublin City Council to help subsidises the estimated €400,000 annual running costs.

But the council confirmed to RTÉ that it was not in a position to fund a private enterprise. Read more on this story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
