A spokesman for Fingal County Council said:
“The return of concerts to Malahide is a positive development and another sign that the economy is picking up as the demand for outdoor concerts of this type has returned. Previous concerts in Malahide were very well run and the promoters will be working with all stakeholders over the coming months to ensure that all necessary plans are in place to ensure this summer’s events are just as successful and there is minimum disruption to local residents.”
