Cliff diving makes its first appearance in the heart of the Irish capital

This event will be LIVE on May 12 at 6.30 PM local time (5.30 PM GMT) on www.redbullcliffdiving.com, Red Bull TV, Facebook & Youtube.

This is a two day event and tickets for the Saturday and Sunday will go on sale shortly.

From the warmest and remotest to the chilliest and most urban stop of the year, the second competition takes the cliff diving elite back to Ireland. After three events at the near-rectangular natural pool in Inis Mor on the rugged Aran Islands, the World Series is hosted in the capital city for the first time.

When the platforms are mounted on the Millennium Tower, at 63m high the city's tallest storied building from 1998 to 2009, 14 men and 10 women will have a panoramic view over Dublin City, with the Bord Gáis Energy Theater and the Marker Hotel in the immediate vicinity. On the water below, thousands of people on boats and kayaks are expected to cheer them to extraordinary feats.

Grand Canal Dock, located in Dublin's south inner-city, is one of the capital's most sought after retail and residential areas. It has undergone massive redevelopment in recent decades and is now home to high-end hotels, retail outlets, apartment complexes and some of the world's biggest tech companies. Some locals also refer to it as 'Silicon Docks'. It's also a place to kick-back and boasts ultra-modern architecture as well as a number of premium bars. The canal's history is outlined at the floating Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre.

When first opened in 1796, the Grand Canal complex was the world's largest docklands. The dock is also a launch point for kayakers and windsurfers and this May the cliff divers will add their magic to the area's history.
