Concerts row: GAA needs 'much better relationship' with residents living near Croker




A meeting between local politicians and the GAA over the Croke Park concerts has been described as "constructive".

Residents are opposed to the staging of eight gigs at the stadium this summer as it breaks an agreement to only hold three events.

One Direction are due to play three nights in May, with Garth Brooks taking to the stage for five nights in July.

Independent TD for Dublin Central Maureen O'Sullivan said they outlined their concerns to officials, in a frank exchange of views.

She said the issues were to find a "solution to the immediate problem (of) excessive concerts and developing a much, much better relationship with those who live in the vicinity of Croke Park"
