I think the voice most absent regarding the “Bleedin’ Rapids” that just got the green light in George’s Dock, Dublin is that of the people who will put it to the most valuable use; swift water rescuers.
There’s a big push from the Hard Left to paint it as a plaything for the rich, and any answers to that get met with “get in the sea for free” or f*** off to the UK”.
What do ye front line workers think? I’m thinking of two horrible car sinking accidents of our quays where knowledge of car sinking dynamics would have made a difference to survival. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m led to believe that kind of training can only be done in a controlled flooded car environment, the kind that this facility would provide.

The DFB's main point was that they could train in safe (i.e. non toxic) water.
Money is better spent on the DFB itself or many, many other issues facing the city (lack of safe cycle route on quays for one).
