Phoenix Park Pilot Event: Up to 3,500 attendees permitted next month

Words: Dylan Murphy

Inject it into our veins.

According to a report in the Independent, on June 26, up to 3,500 people will be permitted to attend an outdoor music festival at Phoenix Park in Dublin

The news comes as part of wider government plans for pilot events next month where those attending will undertake rapid tests for Covid-19 before entering the events.

Alongside the event in Phoenix Park is an event curated by the National Concert Hall in Iveagh Gardens with a capacity of 500 attendees. Both events are part of proposals that will see further gigs go ahead if they are a success.

Elsewhere, there are plans for two indoor music events in June. This would include an opera capped at 500 people in Limerick and an indoor concert at the Killarney INEC on June 26.

Meanwhile, it will be revealed that up to 3,000 match goers will be permitted to attend the Camogie League Final at Croke Park on June 20 and up to 1,000 will be allowed to Shamrock Rovers’ League of Ireland clash with Finn Harps on June 11 at Tallaght Stadium for.

Full details are due to be announced by Tourism Minister Catherine Martin later.
