Garth Brooks in Ireland: Why were Croke Park gigs cancelled?

Garth Brooks has criticised the handling of his five concerts in Dublin after they were cancelled earlier this week.

Dublin City Council only granted permission for only three of the gigs to go ahead at Croke Park stadium. As a result, all five, scheduled to take place from 25-29 July were called off on Tuesday.

The US star added that if Irish prime minister Enda Kenny wanted to speak with him to try and find a resolution, he would "crawl, swim and fly over".

BBC News takes a look at how the story unfolded.
