Labour Relations Commission Chief Executive Kieran Mulvey is to mediate talks between the GAA and local residents near Croke Park about the forthcoming Garth Brooks concerts.

A letter to local resident representatives from GAA Director General Páraic Duffy states that Mr Mulvey will be attending a meeting for residents at the end of the month.

Mr Duffy said that event plans for the concerts will be shared with residents before an application for permission is made to Dublin City Council.

He also said that the GAA wants to reach a long-term agreement or charter about the staging of events at Croke Park.

The meeting with residents is due to take place on 29 March.

Tickets have been sold for five Garth Brooks concerts in Croke Park this July.

Three One Direction concerts and an evening American football game are also planned at the venue for this year.
