Licensing of Indoor Events Bill 2001: Second Stage.
Pat Gallagher (Minister of State, Department of the Environment and Local Government; Donegal South West, Fianna Fail)
The legislation also covers churches, a subject Senators may wish to discuss at a later date. As far as venues are concerned, each event will require a licence as crowd management issues vary with the type of gig and audience profile. A rave gig with a teenage audience would require a high level of crowd control, whereas a classical concert would not. For example, a Daniel O'Donnell concert would only require a low level of crowd control.
