Hearing that the country was awash in cash, Barbra Streisand has decided it’s high time to visit Ireland. She performs at Castletown House, Celbridge, Co Kildare on July 14.

It will be a posh affair, per the press release.

“A 58 piece orchestra will accompany Ms Streisand as she performs many of the classic songs from her unique repertoire such as “Evergreen”, “People”, “The Way We Were”, “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and many more.”

You don’t usually get that sort of thing in Co Kildare. You certainly won’t get it the week before.

Tickets for this soiree? Well, they start at 118.50 euro and then rise to 193.50 euro, 270.75 euro and 551.75 euro.

What the hell do you get for 551.75 euro (including booking fee)? The mind boggles.
