The 3rd annual Dragons at the Docks


The 2nd annual Dragons at the Docks, raises over €250,000 for Dublin Simon

Cairn Homes pips Investec and Lisney to take top prize

Over 800 participants took part in this year’s Dragons At the Docks property industry fund raising event held at Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2. The dragon boat racing competition saw 70 teams compete in races and, in the process, raise €250,000 for charity.

The overall winner was the team from Cairn Homes, with Collen coming second, and Investec coming third in a competitive final race. Last year the competition was won by the team from construction company Sisk.

Nine of Ireland’s biggest property companies were the cornerstone sponsors of the second year of the event, with Dalata Hotel Group, Glenveagh Property and Hines joining the original six companies who launched the event last year: Cairn Homes, Green Reit, Hammerson, Hibernia REIT, Ires Reit and Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate.
