The policing bill for the five Garth Brooks concerts last year in Croke Park was €380,000, according to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act.

Gardaí charge for policing services at large concerts and sporting events, with the amount usually agreed with the commercial organisation running the event beforehand.

Aiken Promotions paid the policing costs around the country music star’s concerts in Dublin last September.

According to figures released to Newstalk, Garth Brooks’s five concerts were the most expensive of 2022 – followed by the Malahide Castle Summer Concerts in Dublin – which cost almost €272,000.

The policing bill for the National Ploughing Championships in Ratheniska, Co Laois, last September was more than €254,000.
