Garth Brooks gigs: Residents set to object to licence application

A row between local residents and Croke Park officials over the staging of eight concerts at the stadium this summer is set to roll on.

A meeting between promoters, the GAA and the local community last night, highlighted the anger at the Garth Brooks and One Direction gigs.

Locals say they have not been consulted about the shows and that only three have been agreed.

Dublin north inner-city Councillor Neil Ring said residents are willing to take action against the gigs.

"For the five Garth Brooks concerts they have to apply to Dublin City Council for an events licence," he said.

"Myself and my fellow councillors in the central area which surrounds Croke Park voted unanimously on Tuesday that we would object to the licence, unless the residents and business interests and all stakeholders were happy with what the GAA were proposing to do on those nights."
