Garth Brooks, the American country star, is returning to Ireland for a high-profile concert in Dublin this year.

Though it has not been officially announced, there is reliable speculation that the 51-year-old Oklahoma-born singer will be announced at a major media conference in Dublin today.

Last month, Brooks confirmed that he was ready to get back on the road this year and a global tour, taking in major European cities, would be on the schedule.

Dublin’s Croke Park is believed to be the venue for Brooks’ show when he comes, very probably in early summer.
