If you've been enjoying the Garth Brooks documentary on Netflix you probably haven't enjoyed it as much as Kerry politician Niall 'Botty' O'Callaghan.

The Road I'm On, a two-part documentary on the life of Garth Brooks has arrived on Netflix recently, and it features a warts-and-all segment on the infamous Croke Park saga of 2014 when the singer was meant to play three nights at the venue, before it got extended to five and eventually he played none.

Anyway, you can read more about that part of the documentary here but why dwell on the past when we can start planning for future Garth concerts on these shores? If O'Callaghan gets his way, Brooks will be arriving in The Kingdom for a series of gigs after the independent politician tweeted: 'Watching the Garth brooks doc on Netflix and his mother and he singing about Killarney!!!! WOW. Somebody tell Peter Aitken we would host Garth in Fitzgerald Stadium for a week of concerts. Please retweet and see if Peter or Garth will respond. Lovely tv.'

You know someone means business when they put 'WOW' in all caps. Further down the thread, Niall says that the Croke Park scenes in the documentary made were 'crazy' and 'made us look bad' but let's hope Garth accepts the invitation and we can all put the sorry saga behind us.

The Road I'm On is available to view now on Netflix.
