Concerts return to Malahide Castle

Concerts are to return to Malahide Castle for the first time in six years.

AFTER an absence of six years, concerts are to return to Malahide Castle.

British rock band The 1975 will perform at the Northside venue on Saturday, June 17.

The last concert to be held at the castle was when Prince came to town in July 2011.  

Other artists who have performed at the venue since concerts were first staged in Malahide in the summer of 2007 include Arctic Monkeys, Pink, Joe Cocker, Al Green, Bell X1, Radiohead, Neil Young and Eric Clapton.

Fingal County Council said talks are ongoing with the promoters in relation to holding other concerts this year in Malahide. This event is subject to licence.

The council said the promoter has already held a pre-consultation meeting with key stakeholders such as the gardaí, fire brigade and HSE. 

Patrons attending the concert will be informed that there is limited parking at the venue and advised to use public transport. They will also be requested to respect the privacy and property of local residents.

A spokesman for Fingal County Council said: “The return of concerts to Malahide is a positive development and another sign that the economy is picking up as the demand for outdoor concerts of this type has returned.  Previous concerts in Malahide were very well run and the promoters will be working with all stakeholders over the coming months to ensure that all necessary plans are in place to ensure this summer’s events are just as successful and there is minimum disruption to local residents.” 

The 1975 have just released their new single ‘Loving Someone’ which is taken from their second album, ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’. 

The group, from Manchester, comprises Matthew Healy (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Adam Hann (lead guitar), Ross MacDonald (bass) and George Daniel (drums).
