Fans have been let down by the system but they've also been let down by Garth Brooks
SOMETIMES we can be such a nation of cowboys. So it's hardly surprising that Ireland's buck-eejit organisational skills have put the world's most famous buckaroo on the warpath.
Garth Brooks is either steaming, sulking or sobbing his heart out about the Croke Park debacle. One way or another, the man in the black ten-gallon hat has decided it's no dice for any Irish concerts.
Those five back-to-backs gigs have become the most talked-about shows since the Elvis Comeback special in 1968. And no wonder, because Brooks's record sales are eclipsed only by Presley's.
