The Commissioners of Public Works can advise that the proposed concerts for Phoenix Park are still subject to a license from Dublin City Council. As part of the licensing process for this event, Dublin City Council received submissions and observations from the public, which are being considered in advance of a decision on the license. It is not possible to give information on possible road closures and security until this process is complete.

Meetings are ongoing between Fingal County Council, Dublin City Council, OPW and other prescribed statutory bodies in relation to the proposed event.
