MCD Productions held six major concerts at Irish Independent Park in Cork last month with the events proving a huge success.

The capacity for the venue was set at 12,000 with a number of the concerts selling out as more than 65,000 people attended over the six nights.

Star musicians George Ezra, Walking On Cars, Lewis Capaldi, The Coronas, Liam Gallagher, Hozier and Lauryn Hill were among the acts that performed in Cork.

The feedback from concert-goers, local residents and businesses was hugely positive with the events proving extremely popular.

As Irish Independent Park is located in a residential area, the support of the local residents was imperative for the events to run smoothly and their co-operation throughout was much appreciated.

The modified 4G pitch was covered for the six concerts with the stage installed at the Pearse Road end of the stadium.

Following the concerts, the stage and pitch covers were removed and it is business as usual at the stadium ahead of the upcoming season.

See some photos of the events below.
