Proposals to build 160 homes and redevelop Dublin's Dolphin Park have been refused.
A GAA club wanted to sell off some of the land and use the money to build a new sports facility.
Templeogue Synge Street GAA club wanted to sell 15 percent of its grounds to developers.
It said it would use the money to fund a club house, floodlights and changing rooms.
As a result, the plans raised more than 160 objections including one from Kevin's Hurling and Camogie Club which also use the grounds.
The Times Ireland Edition reports that Dublin City Council has refused permission for the sale for reasons including concerns of increased traffic and risks to pedestrians and cyclists.
