Dublin City Council has voted in favour of a proposal to establish a white water rafting attraction on the River Liffey.
Last week, the project was widely slammed after the Dublin Chamber of Commerce shared mock-up images of what it would look like in the IFSC area of the docks.
The estimated cost of the planned recreational facility is €22 million and would take around 18 months to build.
The facility will be funded by a combination of grants, development levies and City Council borrowing. The White Water Centre is expected to generate a significant operating surplus that will cover the cost of loan repayments to the City Council.
