No winners in the Garth Brooks debacle

* It was over long before the fat man sang, and let me tell you this: there were no winners here, only losers – yes, losers – even if you are a local objector from the Croke Park area. I'll tell you why.

To deprive innocent, decent people of a night's enjoyment, which they had paid for with their hard-earned cash, was, in my opinion, wrong.

Wrong because for once you held the trump cards in your hands, you had the power to stop any further concerts in this arena for the next number of years; you had the power to show mercy to young and old who were so looking forward to going to this concert.
