Dublin Fianna Fáil Councillor Mary Fitzpatrick said she hopes that MCD will accept an invitation to attend a meeting next month of the Dublin Joint Policing Committee.

It follows the publication of a report into the violence at last month's Swedish House Mafia concert at the Phoenix Park.

The garda review identified serious shortcomings in how security for the event was organised and the suitability of the venue.

Speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, Cllr Fitzpatrick said there was still questions to be answered by the concert promoters MCD and by the gardaí.

In a statement last night, MCD said the garda report was unbalanced and called for the full report to be made public immediately.

“MCD would also call for a full independent public inquiry be held into events which occurred at the Phoenix Park on 7 July,” it said, adding that their review into the events would be published in due course
