Stephen Donnelly, Fianna Fail TD for Wicklow and East Carlow has today welcomed the commitment made by both Fianna Fáil and the Government to introduce laws to address ticket touting in the coming months.

Speaking earlier today, Deputy Donnelly commented,

“A Bill proposed by Deputy Maurice Quinlivan to address ticket touting will be accepted today by both Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, with an amendment to ensure that all input from the consultation process has been completed. I have also just received confirmation that my own bill, co-sponsored with Noel Rock TD, will come before the Dáil shortly. As such, both Bills will be considered by the Oireachtas committee at the same time.

“I look forward to the completion of a robust piece of legislation which will make a real difference for festival goers and sports fans when it is completed.”
