Sinn Féin votes in favour of busking bylaws- Cllr Séamas McGrattan

3 February, 2015 - by Séamas McGrattan


The Sinn Féin group on Dublin City Council has voted in favour of the new street performer’s bylaws tonight.

Sinn Féin group leader on Dublin City Council Cllr Séamas McGrattan said:

“Sinn Féin has been part of the process of introducing bylaws for buskers since the idea was first floated in 2011. We voted in favour of these new street performers bye laws tonight for a number of reasons, all of which all ensure that traditional busking will remain part of the fabric of our city. The new regulations will also protect residents and businesses as, for the first time ever, it gives them a chance to report unacceptable noise levels.

Cllr McGrattan continued:

“I feel these new bylaws are necessary as the issue of excessive noise and nuisance to residents and business by a small minority of buskers was getting out of hand. The updated regulations also protect the genuine performers and ensures busking will remain at the heart of our City for many years to come.”
