Letters: Fans of Garth and GAA have been treated with contempt

* After spending hours over a number of days in front of a computer, I finally got a pair of tickets for the final night of the Garth Brooks's Croke Park concerts. We, the desperately seeking ticket people, were the ones who initially set in train the demand for a minimum of five concerts.
I and thousands of people like me have given a lifetime of service to the GAA and other organisations that rely heavily on voluntary endeavour.
Without us there would be no Croke Park or GAA. Some of us have been attending games and other events in Croke Park long before some residents lived there. Over the years, we have spent money inside and outside the stadium. We have patronised shops, hostelries, pubs, eating houses and street traders.
