It always give me a chuckle at how many of his lifelong fans still think his name is "Gareth Brooks".

At least Garth can use the stage that he never got to use in 2014, it's apparently stored in a warehouse in Mountmellick of all places since then.

A large majority of the residents are furious the gigs are going ahead. Aiken promotions held a meeting and told the residents they had confirmed 2 gigs and were looking to confirm another 3. Residents were told licencing laws have changed so they couldn't go to court like they did the last time to stop the shows. Cocky twats were only short of gloating about it.

Wouldn't give a guarantee that croker would be limited to 3 concerts per year anymore either from 2022 onwards

Iwhile garth isn't my cup an tae. What do these residents expect  they live beside a stadium that was there long b4 any off them were. Live with it. Sorry if that sounds harsh but it's reality. Thry knew where was a stadium there.

Gareth is a feature of Hiberno English. You can't have 3 consonants in a row so you have to throw in a vowel- eg fillum.

For once, only one county (Tyrone) should get 100% of a ticket allocation. There’ll be no complaints from any other county on that score  ;D
We cant be in Croker all the time surely. Id be all for playing it in Newbridge...

They live beside a sports stadium, not a concert venue. Residents understand how it works for the GAA, but its different for concerts. Drunken fools pissing in doorways at 11pm on their way home is not something anyone signs up for

First concert was nearly 40 years ago and it been going ever since, I can understand if people have lived their longer. but stop with the nonsense. You buy a house near a river expect it to flood the odd time, you buy your house near a concert venue, expect it to be full of people, also expect people pissing in the street, its up to the police to police that.

Wouldnt let the p***k through the gates, you wouldn't get 5 nites in the aviva, the posh residents wouldn't stand for it. I suppose can eliminate amateur status from the GAA  as a
 organisation.

As for people buying a house in the area I say many are in houses from their parents time.
