The 53-metre long, 22-tonne, glulam beams that will form the structure of the impressive Subtropical Swimming Paradise

These are the 53-metre long, 22-tonne that will form the structure of Center Parcs Longford Forest's Subtropical Swimming Paradise.

Sisk construction workers welcomed the vastly sized glulam beams as they arrived at the €233m leisure holiday village last week after travelling over 2,000 kilometres from Altheim in Austria.

A jewel in the crown of the resort, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise will be heated to a balmy 29.5C year-round and will be Ireland’s largest indoor water park.

Their arrival represents somewhat of a milestone for the multi million euro development as it prepares to open its doors to its first visitors in 12 months time.
