The Barbra Streisand Irish concert saga looks like it’s coming to an end. The report has been issued, the apologies have been given and 2,500 Babs freaks are going to get either their money back or a “voucher”.

The report itself has CCTV footage from the day, extracts from the event management plan and even rainfall charts.

Interestingly, there’s also a statement from National Consumer Agency big cheese Anne Fitzgerald with the report, including this lovely nugget which suggests that this one, like Babs, may yet run and run.

We believe that the compensation being offered by MCD represents a fair deal for consumers. However, the NCA would advise patrons that, if they do not wish to accept the compensation now on offer from MCD, they are entitled to refuse it and to take action against the company in the Small Claims Court. Similarly, patrons who are not being offered any compensation may have grounds for action in the Small Claims Court

But, are you happy now? Bet those who didn’t complain are fuming.
