City Council Grant Licence For Stones Croker Gig


The Rolling Stones are coming to town! With the news that Dublin City Council has formally granted permission for a licence for the rock veterans to perform at Croke Park on the 17th of May.

Meanwhile, a representative of the Clonliffe and Croke Park area residents association said they were “deeply unhappy” at today’s decision.

They held a public meeting last month where a number of locals voiced their concerns over what they fear will be the increased use of Croke Park.

“We’re not happy that’s the bottom line and we feel that we’ve been let down by Dublin City Council,” said association chairperson Patrick Gates.

He said that the residents won’t be just disrupted on the day of the concert itself, It’s also the days leading up to the event where huge crews will arrive in to start setting up the sprawling stage.

The license was granted on Tuesday for the May 17 concert. Tour tickets on sale on Friday, March 23, priced from €70.45 – €181.
