Phoenix Park Concerts Face Objections From Residents

A number of planned summer concerts at Phoenix Park are being strongly objected to by near-by residents.

Three concerts are planned for Phoenix Park this year, all subject to a license being granted.

Some two weeks ago MCD lodged its license application with Dublin City Council and residents have five weeks to either object or seek a change to the licensing terms.

The first of two public consultation meetings in advance of the proposed concerts took place on Monday night.

It is understood that residents from Chapelizod met with concert promoters MCD, the Office of Public Works, gardaí, and Dublin City Council, to state their objection to the concerts.
