Something needs to be done about this.. the government need to step in.
Nine people stabbed at Swedish House Mafia concert in the Phoenix Park
Nine people were injured in separate stabbing incidents at a concert in the Phoenix Park in Dublin last night.
The incidents happened at a concert by electronic dance act Swedish House Mafia.
Three men are being treated at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown. Two of them were seriously wounded.
Gardaí are continuing to question a 23-year-old man who is being held at Blanchardstown Garda Station.
Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to contact them in Blanchardstown on 6667000 or at any other garda station.
They say they are investigating the possibility that there was more than one person responsible for the stabbings.
Meanwhile, gardaí are also appealing for information on the identity of a man who was at the concert but died in Connolly Hospital last night.
The man, who was in his early 20s, sought medical attention at the concert, before being taken to hospital.
A post mortem is to be carried out later today to establish the cause of death.
There were also several arrests for public order offences before and during the concert.
In a statement issued by MCD Productions, who organised the event, it said every precaution as far as possible was taken to ensure the safety and security of the audience at all times.
"Despite our best efforts (with security and gardaí personnel levels well in excess of the required numbers for a licensed event of this size) there is only so much one can do to combat anti-social behaviour," it said.
It added that they are continuing to fully co-operate with gardaí and have handed over all CCTV footage from the area to them.
Managing director of MCD Denis Desmond said "we are extremely shocked and saddened to hear that a male adult while attending the Phoenix Park concert on Saturday 7 July suddenly took ill and later passed away in hospital.
"The case is being treated by An Gardai Siochana as a sudden death and we are doing everything possible to help them with their inquiries."
Opposition justice spokesperson, Fianna Fail's Dara Calleary has called on Justice Minister Alan Shatter to address the rising violence and anti-social behaviour in the capital.
Mr Calleary said the rise in the number of instances of violent crime in recent weeks was alarming.
