Margaret O' Brien has been a fan of U2 since 1987.

Margaret made the Cork Examiner in 1989 for queuing from 6am in the morning to secure tickets to the LoveTown tour in the Point Depot, Dublin.

The band will be playing the same venue this year (now called the Three Arena) in November, and her son Shane is hoping to win the tickets to bring his aunt to the concert.

"She got me tickets 26 years ago... I would really love it if you could make her dream come true".

Shane is confident that Margaret would get up on stage, if given half a chance. "She loves Bono... and (could) just become the oldest person to ever get up on stage with him!"
