Buddhist silent meditation in Ireland will be too noisy, neighbours fear – The Times

A Buddhist group behind plans for a new temple in Kilmainham has rejected its neighbours’ concerns about noise, saying it will be mainly used for “silent meditation”.
Kagyu Buddhism Ireland (KBI) insists the occasional use of instruments such as “ritual horns” will not bother other residents thanks to modern “soundproofing”.
KBI’s planning application for a new teaching and meditation temple on Inchicore Road has been opposed by the New Kilmainham Historical Society, Rosemount Court management committee, and five residents, who wrote to Dublin city council last April setting out their objections.
The building is to be behind the existing Tibetan Buddhist meditation centre and includes a ground-floor teaching space, a two-bedroom apartment on the first floor, and a shrine room on the second floor.
