The submissions are being made after MCD and Munster Rugby, which owns Musgrave Park, announced six concerts this summer between June 20 and June 26. Big acts, including George Ezra, Walking on Cars, The Coronas, Liam Gallagher, Hozier and Lauryn Hill, are all playing at the southside venue this summer.
Ballyphehane resident, Elaine Davis, said locals are resigned to the fact that this summer will be “marred” by the concerts, but they don’t want it to become an annual occurrence in their area. Ms Davis, who attended a meeting of 50 to 60 residents on Monday, hosted by MCD and Munster Rugby, said locals are concerned about noise pollution, traffic and anti-social behaviour.
“We learned about the concerts by letter in January after we contacted Munster Rugby and all hell broke loose.
“We thought one concert, fine, two we thought okay, but six, we are very concerned.”
Ms Davis, who has two small children, said the open-air concerts are on during the Leaving Certificate and there will be children studying and trying to sleep.
Floodlights will be kept at 25% and only used at the end of the night.
