Around 100 people are attending a public meeting in Drumcondra, which is gathering objections to a planned performance by the Rolling Stones in Croke Park in the summer.

It was announced today that the Rolling Stones are set to take to the stage at Croke Park, with the band to play the stadium on 17 May.

Taylor Swift is due to play two Croke Park concerts in June, while Michael Bublé will perform on 7 July.

Pat Gates, the Chairman of the Clonliffe and Croke Park Area Residents' Association, told the meeting that the scheduling of a fourth concert in 2018 is an intensification of the use of the stadium which is disrupting the quality of life of locals.

The meeting also heard from Colm Stevens, who said that it was the first public meeting held in the area since the failed plan by country musician Garth Brooks to hold a series of concerts here in 2014.

He said there were no consultation with residents about the event which he said would transform Croke Park into a "nightclub for 80,000 people" which he said "just doesn't fit with the area".

Mr Stevens said the plans are in breach of the cap of three concerts being held in the stadium and that the traffic, parking, policing and security plans for the event were inadequate.

He also said that the application for 18 days of preparation work on some nights up to 1am was not acceptable and they were calling on Dublin City Council not to give a licence to the event.

The meeting was told that there also rumours of another major event being held in the stadium in August.

Speaking on RTÉ's News at One, Mr Gates said it "would be mad" if the residents' association did not challenge the application because it would "open the floodgates".

Mr Gates said the city council has an obligation and a duty to protect the amenities of the local community and he hopes it will continue to restrict the number of concerts to three a year.

Conditions set by An Bord Pleanála restrict the number of concerts in the stadium to three a year.

Mr Gates pointed out that the disruption, caused by concerts, begins ten days before the actual event, with heavy trucks coming in to set up the venue.

He added that residents have a lot to put up with over the course of a year, between GAA games and concerts.

He said nothing has really moved on since the Garth Brooks "fiasco" four years ago which saw the eventual cancellation of the US singer's concerts at Croke Park.

"80,000 people coming into the community is going to create disruption and it's not just a one-day event," said Mr Gates.

"It starts ten days before, when they start erecting the stage, and then three or four days afterwards, when they are dismantling it."

Croke Park, Aiken promotions and Dublin City Council have all declined to comment on the calls by some residents not to grant the Rolling Stones concert a licence.
