As news broke that two of the five Dublin concerts by Garth Brooks were to be cancelled, the phone lines were hopping today on Liveline.

Lord Mayor Christy Burke, David Brennan CEO of the Dublin City Business Association, Billy, Tony, Alva, Kieran, Carol, Fidelma, Des, Paul, Mary and Donal had a variety of opinions both for and against the concerts.

On the fascinating topic of older dads, Marianne Gallagher's father was born in 1878! She spoke about his time with Parnell and working with the Land Bank. 

Tommy's dad was born in 1895 and was a non-drinker and non-smoker and very much "old stock".

We finshed today's programme with Donal who had used his credit card to buy Garth Brooks tickets for a fellow fan in the queue (who gave him cash). He doesnt know her, and what will happen when he is refunded the cash now that the concerts are cancelled?
