THEY could have stayed at home bemoaning the fact that they should have been in Dublin singing along to one of country music's greatest stars, but instead the folks in Abbeydorney made the best of a bad situation by hosting their own Garth Brooks themed party on Saturday night.

While locals never believed the clever posters on social media claiming the man himself was coming to the GAA Complex after owners were granted a one-day licence, it didn't stop them turning up in numbers to enjoy a night of country music and dance to honour the man himself as fans even tried their hand at line-dancing.

To really get into the spirit of things, locals donned jeans, check shirts, stetsons and cowboy boots while old Garth Brooks favourites echoed around the bar. It may not have been Croke Park but for those at The Complex on Saturday night it was the next best thing.
