  • A company owned by Roscommon-born property developer Sean Mulryan has created a suspended swimming pool, 35 metres in the air, between two apartment blocks in London.

    The Sky Pool allows residents to swim in the unique pool, which spans 15 metres, is suspended 10 storeys high and allows residents two swim between the two high-rise luxury apartment buildings at Nine Elms in south-west London.

    The pool, described as a world-first, was built in the USA where is underwent rigorous testing, before being transported to London.

    The Ballymore Group, owned by Sean Mulryan, says the structure is the largest piece of load-bearing acrylic in the world.

    The company built the Embassy Gardens apartments in 2017, and has now built more than 20,000 homes in London.
