The Rolling Stones will perform at Croke Park in Dublin in May after a licence for the gig was granted by Dublin City Council on Tuesday.

Dublin City Council granted Aiken Promotions its Outdoor Event Licence this week.

He claimed: "Many residents now fear that Croke Park will apply for licences for even more concerts next year - especially now that the GAA plans not to hold intercounty games during the month of April".

Stadium Director Peter McKenna issued a correspondence to people living in the area around Croke Park on February 1, informing them of the application for an additional special event in the stadium.

The Rolling Stones are officially coming to Dublin.

The gig will be the fourth to take place at Croke Park this summer, surpassing the limit of three set by An Bord Pleanála, with Taylor Swift scheduled to perform at GAA HQ on two dates and Michael Bublé pencilled in for a gig on Saturday, 7 July.

Meanwhile, a representative of the Clonliffe and Croke Park area residents association said they were "deeply unhappy" at today's decision.

Around 60 residents are believed to have lodged objections to concert in May, on top of the three planned for June and July.

"An Bord Pleanála set the limit of three concerts in the interests of safety and public health", he said.

He pointed out that construction works and rehearsals can last until as late as 1am, and the concert would cause traffic chaos.

The veteran rockers will bring their "No Filter" tour to the capital on Thursday, 17 May, with tickets for the gig going on sale on Friday morning at 9am.

The Rolling Stones last played in Ireland in 2007 when they headlined Slane Castle.
