Croke Park

29th July, 2009

The protests at Croke Park have been called off but issues still remain that must be tackled. As I blogged last week the meeting organised in relation to Croke Park was one of the biggest and angriest that I have yet attended. It appears to me that two things need to be done to make start in dealing with these issues.

Firstly, the licensing legislation must be changed to allow these issues to be resolved before the license is granted for the event.

Secondly, we need to put in place a collective and inclusive process for discussing key issues raised by residents, for the agreement of action steps and for accountability to make sure that these steps are implemented.
