Common sense should prevail on Garth Brooks Concerts – Mary Lou McDonald TD

13 July, 2014 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD

Sinn Féin Deputy Leader and Dublin Central TD Mary Lou McDonald TD has called for common sense to prevail in an effort to resolve the Garth Brooks concerts debacle.

Speaking today, Deputy McDonald said:

“Dublin City Manager, Owen Keegan, has conceded the point regarding five Garth Brooks concerts. In my view, it is now time to get on with it and provide five gigs on five consecutive nights. This is a much safer and more orderly approach to the matinée proposals from the City Manager. Common sense should now prevail in an effort to resolve the situation.

“This would be a positive outcome for the city of Dublin. The city would receive a substantial economic boot from the concerts going ahead. Those who bought tickets, booked flights and buses, and reserved accommodation would avoid inconvenience and disappointment. Notwithstanding concerns, local residents have made clear their desire to see the concerts go ahead.”
