Potential to Turn Dublin’s Docklands into Major International Tourist Destination

Developing the Dublin docklands into a maritime tourism destination could deliver 1,200 jobs and €36 million investment, Ciaran Flanagan, chairman of the Docklands Business Forum, has said.

Flanagan speaks ahead of the Docklands Business Awards, which will take place in the Gibson Hotel on Thursday.

Awards will be given across a range of categories including innovation, professional services, business of the year and corporate social responsibility.
