"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".
On Thursday, it was announced that Aiken Promotions would make an application to hold a fourth concert in Croke Park this year.
If the concert is granted permission by Dublin City Council, it would be the only event taking place during the month of May in Croke Park, where 29 events are already scheduled to take place in 2018.
Past year there was just two music concerts at the venue.
Stadium Director Peter McKenna issued a correspondence to people living in the area around Croke Park on Thursday, informing them of the application for an additional special event on the grounds.
There are already three concerts booked for Croke Park this summer including Taylor Swift's concerts on June 15 and 16 and Michael Bublé on July 7.
Residents around Croke Park remain opposed to a fourth concert this year, according to a local spokesperson. Stadium-ready acts touring around then include Ed Sheeran - but he's playing the Phoenix Park either side of that date and while it's pretty unlikely that his stage set-up could be transferred or duplicated for one night, at the end of the day it's just him and a guitar.
