Hugely popular Crumlin troubadour Paddy Casey has sold a staggering 250,000 copies of his two albums to date in Ireland alone.

Last Friday, he released his new album “Addicted To Company (Part 1)” and marked this occasion with an in-store performance at Tower Records on Wicklow Street, Dublin.

Given the above numbers, how many people do you think allegedly turned up for this prestigious in-store performance?

(a) 1,000

(b) 800

(c) 500

(d) 25 – and 10 of these hardy souls were from his label or management company

Interestingly, there are tickets still on sale for Paddy’s show at Crawdaddy tonight (Monday), even though his own website claims the show is sold out.
