In our Monday debate, we looked at the cost of going to concerts and festivals in Ireland.

Why are ticket prices here so high compared to other countries in Europe?

John O'Neil, CEO of Tickets.ie, Clare Daly, Independents 4 Change TD, Ros Madigan, editor of Goldenplec, and Colm Croffy, director of the Irish Festivals and Events Association, joined us to discuss this.
