More calls have been made for ticket-touting regulation, with suggestions Ticketmaster isn’t doing enough to combat the issue.
It’s after tickets for Ed Sheeran’s Irish Tour appeared online for twice their face value.
Ed Sheeran tickets were only on sale a matter of minutes before they started to resurface again on ticket reselling websites.
It’s despite the singer himself wanting extra measures in place for the gigs in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Belfast in order to prevent touting.
Ticketmaster responded by printing the name of the holder on the tickets, so they couldn’t be resold.
However with tickets still appearing online, Fine Gael TD Noel Rock says it’s not enough.
In order to secure a ticket in their hands, a number of people went the traditional route of purchasing them by queuing overnight.
