The Newgrange-inspired Irish pavilion showcases Irish ‘prosperity’

The State has spent more than €9m to build a Newgrange-inspired pavilion to represent Ireland at the Dubai Expo.

Costs for the pavilion — which was built by the Office of Public Works (OPW) on behalf of the Department of Foreign Affairs — have so far come to €9.07m, with significant concerns raised in advance over possible cost overruns on the project.
