Tickets to Bernie Sanders first public appearance in Ireland have sold out in under five minutes.

The politician is due to visit as part of the Dalkey Book Festival, with his itinerary including a stop-off at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre for a conversation about his best-selling book Our Revolution with David McWilliams on June 4th.

Tickets - priced from €15 - went on sale at 9am, but subsequently sold out - much to the dismay of many Sanders fans on social media who wanted to 'feel the Bern''.

 

 

In a tweet following the sale, Dalkey Book Festival said:

"Bernie Sanders breaks the internet! Well the internet at least!!We are back up & running, loads more events to choose from!"

Better luck next year folks...
