For both Garth Brooks and Mayo, the dream of five headline performances at GAA HQ lives on, but it could remain an Unanswered Prayer.

With residents primed to protest (again) Paddy Power released odds of 6/4 that all five gigs DON’T go ahead.

And in tandem with their billboard, Paddy Power announced they are also taking bets on the seemingly cursed Mayo footballers to dump Dublin out of the 2022 Senior Football Championship…again.

Hon Mayo.

Not this again.

Barry Roche, in The Irish Times, reports:

[Lord Mayor of Cork] Cllr Des Cahill told The Neil Prendeville Show on Cork’s Red FM sources within the music industry had told him talks were under way to bring Garth Brooks and Adele to Páirc Uí Chaoimh next summer, once a €70 million refurbishment of the stadium is completed.

“Negotiations are underway to sign contracts… June was the date I heard for Garth Brooks and July was the date I heard for Adele,” said Mr Cahill, adding he was “very, very confident” both artists would play the Cork venue next year.

This morning,

The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin

Actress Deirdre O’Kane preparing for Are You There, Garth? It’s Me Margaret, written by Fiona Looney about the Garth Brooks concert cancellation brouhaha.

Meanwhile, The ‘Liberal’ reports:

“Creator Darren Smith – the man behind Anglo: The Musical – says that Garth himself will probably come to the show either next Tuesday or Thursday.”

Sounds legit.

The Gaiety



This morning.

Fair City’s Maclean Burke playing Garth Brooks outside the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin with unidentified  hoss to announce details of Fiona Looney’s new play ‘Are You There Garth? It’s Me Margaret’.

July marks the anniversary of the cancellation of the Garth Brooks Croke Park gigs brouhaha.  ‘Are You There, Garth? It’s Me, Margaret’ opens in the Gaiety  on October 14 for MORE than five shows. Giggle.

Uncanny likeness, in fairness.
