When it was announced that Westlife would be bringing their The Twenty Tour to Croke Park for back-to-back nights, we were as excited as kids in a sweet shop.

The recently-reunited band will take to the stage at the Home of GAA on July 5 and July 6, for the final dates of the UK and Irish leg of their comeback tour.

Now that the gigs are just around the corner, a public safety notice has been issued - and it's very detailed.

According to the concerns promoters, any would-be concert-goers under the age of 14 are not allowed on the pitch - either accompanied or unaccompanied.

And anyone under the age of 16 attending the concert MUST be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian.
