Dublin's O2 Arena To Be Renamed

The O2 arena in Dublin is to be renamed '3Arena', it has been reported.

The change follows a takeover of O2 Ireland by Three Ireland last year.

Elaine Carey, CCO of Three Ireland, is quoted as saying: "Three is delighted to bring more enhanced music experiences to Three and O2 customers and music fans alike.

"Through customer rewards, spectacular in-venue experiences and technical innovations, we're committed to building on a venue that houses some of the world's greatest live music acts.

"As we hand the re-mastered 3Arena over to the people of Ireland to enjoy, we have no doubt that they will capture many incredible memories, for years to come."

The venue, which is owned by Live Nation, was formerly called The Point.

It hosts more than 100 events, including concerts each year, and has a capacity of over 13,000.
