THE Garth Brooks concerts are no different from any other major outdoor event in that the organiser is required to obtain a licence from the relevant planning authority before it can proceed – in this case Dublin City Council.

Before the landmark Planning and Development Act of 2000 was enacted, it was assumed that full planning permission was required for such outdoor events.

In 1993, permission for the development of Croke Park was granted by An Bord Pleanala who attached a condition limiting the total number of concerts to three per year.
