#GeorgesDock - Dublin City Council has issued a design tender for a white-water course as part of a redevelopment of George’s Dock in the city centre.

According to The Architects’ Journal, the canoeing and kayaking course would be positioned around the edge of George’s Dock at Custom House Quay.

This would surround a swift-water training centre for emergency services, and a proposed public lido, both on an island at its centre.

Currently the dock features a large pontoon for special events held sporadically throughout the year.

The deadline for applications for interested design teams is noon on Wednesday 16 May. The Architects’ Journal has more on the 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.
