Phoenix Park Concerts

Dublin City Council is considering an APPLICATION for a Special Event Licence to hold concerts in the Phoenix Park this summer. The application is currently available for members of the public to inspect and make an observation or objection. The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday 12th April 2013, for more information click HERE.

Following the mayhem of last years Swedish House Mafia Concerts, as Chair of the Dublin Central Joint Policing Committee, I brought together the OPW, the Event Organisers, Dublin City Council and the Gardai to review the unfortunate and unacceptable events. Improved protocols and procedures have been agreed by DCC, the OPW, the Event Organisers and the Gardai. As part of these new procedures public consultation meetings are being held to consult with local residents.

A copy of the Licence Application is available to view at the Public Planning counter in DCC Civic Office or at the Visitor Centre Reception in the Phoenix Park. Mary
