Here's how Twitter reacted to the expected announcement that has caused Irish Garth Brooks fans grief today.
People don't realise it was ACTUALLY the staff of Coppers who made the objections. Three nights was their limit. #GarthBrooks

Has anyone made a "but what if the 3rd concert is a draw.. won't we need a replay?" joke yet? ... #GarthBrooks

I really hope #GarthBrooks gets a licence for those other 2 nights, as if he doesn't there's a real chance I'll die laughing.

Dont care where #GarthBrooks plays his 5 gigs. I'll never get over the fact that he isnt your man that sings Achy Breaky Heart.

Great, another day of #GarthBrooks tweets. Just move the rest of the gigs to Thurles. Feilé 91 was held there.

I got friends in no places where the residents drown and the council chases my shows away. #GarthBrooks
