The Oireachtas Committee meeting on the Garth Brooks concert controversy has been cancelled, has learned.

The Transport and Communications Committee issued a statement just after 6pm detailing the times of tomorrow’s hearing.

But little over an hour later committee sources said the meeting was cancelled to give the parties involved time to resolve the licencing row.

Croke Park stadium director Peter McKenna returned early from a holiday in the US to attend the meeting.

And GAA director Pairc Duffy delayed a planned holiday to America so he could attend the meeting.

GAA sources said it did not make sense to have the meetings when talks were on-going.

Dublin City Council manager Owen Keegan told the committee he could not attend due to work commitments.

The committee may hold meetings with those involved in the concert fiasco next week.
