Brooks fans in limbo

Dear Editor,

Local fans have been left in limbo and extremely disappointed by the cancellation of the Garth Brooks Concerts. There were hundreds going from Drogheda and surrounding areas as Country Music is very strong here in Co. Louth.

Garth Brooks is very popular in Drogheda and people are gutted and devastated. With so much doom and gloom this was the high point of their year. I myself am a big Garth Brooks fan and have done an impersonation of him in the St. Patrick's Day Parade and was looking forward to going to the concert.

It was a fiasco and Ireland's reputation has been seriously damaged and that is not to mention the loss to the hospitality, transport and retail sector in Drogheda. It is surely a sad state of affairs that we again have disgraced ourselves in the eyes of the world.

It makes us look foolish and stupid to have arranged the concerts and then someone had the authority to cancel.

Yours,

Cllr Frank Godfrey.
