Angry residents say Croke Park mediation terms 'miss the point'

Garth Brooks - Croker gigs

Croke Park residents say the terms of reference for a mediation process aimed at resolving the dispute over the Garth Brooks concerts "completely miss the point".

The residents say Croke Park is hosting five more concerts this summer than permitted under planning laws - which they say will cause major disruption and breach their human rights.

The Croke Park Streets Committee says it had been promised a binding agreement from the mediation process, which is being led by the Kieran Mulvey, CEO of the Labour Relations Commission.

But Committee Chairman Eamon O'Brien said that's not being delivered.

"They're not a binding agreement," Mr O'Brien said.

"A binding agreement had said that we would stick to the number of concerts (three) allowed under the planning laws.

"That would make a lot more sense than an aspiration about how to minimize the noise levels and traffic disruption and cleaning."
