Dublin City Council is to provide more than 100 portable toilets from this weekend as well as extra bins.
It comes after the authority faced intense criticism for not providing facilities for the large crowds that gathered last weekend.

This morning, Dublin's Lord Mayor Hazel Chu has confirmed that 150 portable toilets will be put in place.
54 large Eurobins and 80 Barrel Bins will also be placed across the city.
These will be put in high footfall areas in the city, including Smithfield, O'Connell Street and Dame Lane.
The toilets will be open from 10am to 11pm daily.
Meanwhile, the government's announced an extra 4 million euro in funding for all local authorities to install extra bins and toilets.
Each council will get at least 50 thousand - and Gardai will work with them to manage any issues with large crowds.
