A meeting of Dublin councillors is to go ahead to discuss changes to bye-laws concerning busking.

Among the possible changes is that buskers may have to audition in order to obtain a spot performing in Dublin’s city centre.

Others proposals include tighter restrictions on busking outside the GPO, dance troupes performing outside Stephen's Green Shopping Centre entrance would be limited to three people or less, and street performers would need to obtain a special permit for Grafton Street.

Councillor Mannix Flynn has said that he also intends to call for the ban of amps, which many local businesses have had problems with.

The council meeting is to go ahead today.
