Marlay Park Concerts to be Reviewed After a ‘Record’ Number of Complaints
The staging of concerts at Dublin’s Marlay Park is set to be reviewed after councilors reported receiving ‘record’ numbers of complaint this summer.
Eight gig were held at the venue over a three-week period in June and July, including the three-day Longitude festival.
One councillor, Fine Gael’s Naele Richmond, has claimed to have received up to 150 complaints from residents in the area.
Residents concerns included noise levels, anti-social behaviour and traffic congestion in the area.
Speaking to The Herald, he said that the “sheer volume” of concerns prompted his request to the council to review the situation.
It is believed that Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Co. Council benefited to the tune of €600,000 from the concerts. This money is ring-fenced for recreational facilities in the area.
