New laws regulating street performance, or busking, have recently been passed in Dublin City just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The new laws were updated in order to ensure the safety and welfare of both performers and the audience.

Dublin City Councillor Séamas McGrattan said after the passage of the new laws, “I welcome and support the new busking bylaws. These bylaws mean that busking will always be a part of our city.”

Among some of the new regulations are: permits for buskers, time limits for street performance, and revocation of permits if buskers do not ad-here to the proper regulations. ♦
