Aiken Promotions are set to make an application to hold a fourth concert in Croke Park this year.

The concert would need a licence to be granted by the Dublin City Council Planning Authority – but if it’s given the green light, it will take place on Thursday, May 17.

Stadium Director Peter McKenna issued a notice to people living near Croke Park on Thursday.

“I wanted to personally let you know this morning before the placement of a notice in the Irish Independent and Herald newspapers tomorrow, Friday, 2nd February,” the letter reads.

“Aiken Promotions intend making an application to Dublin City Council Planning Authority for a licence to hold a concert in Croke Park on Thursday, 17 May 2018.

“Croke Park has planning permission to host three special events per annum under its special events licence granted by Dublin City Council but event promoters can and have applied for additional special event licences in Croke Park so the stadium has hosted more than three special events in one calendar year.”

He also added that the concert, if it goes ahead, would be the only event or match to be scheduled in the stadium for the month.

At the moment, there is only permission for three concerts per year, and Taylor Swift and Michael Bublé have already nabbed those spots.

Taylor will bring her Reputation tour to Croke Park on June 15 and 16; and Michael Bublé, will play there on July 7.
