PICTURE: Did Ticketmaster Play A Garth Brooks Prank On Ed Sheeran Fans Today?!

Pre-sale tickets for Ed Sheeran at Dublin's Croke Park went on sale this morning and a ghost of Croker past came back to haunt one individual trying to purchase tickets online. 

Clare native, Aoife Taylor, was one of thousands of Sheeran fans that attempted to get their hands on the coveted tickets before they officially go on sale tomorrow morning.

What happened Aoife once she attempted to take her tickets through to checkout on Ticketmaster was a bitter reminder of a certain fiasco that surrounded the Irish stadium and a country music legend last year.

Aoife was asked to fill out a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) as a security procedure and the message that appeared on screen was pretty ironic.

Aoife was asked to identify and submit the words... 'Party on Garth'.

We sincerely hope that is a Wayne's World movie reference and not someone playing with the music-loving-Croke-Park-attending-concert-goers across Ireland.

"The worst part," Aoife told our brothers over in JOE.ie, "I didn't get tickets and that just rubbed salt in the wound!"
