Bruce Springsteen is to be invited to perform at Galway Airport in May.

Local Councillors have agreed to contact the promoters who are putting on The Boss's Dublin gigs to ask if he will go out West.

They think the Council-owned site in Carnmore is a perfect concert venue.

The local authority will not have enough time to go through the process of the mandatory 13 week licence application process before the potential May performance.

However, Councillor Pearce Flannery told Galway Bay fm that nothing should be ruled out yet:

"Well, we don't know that there is a deadline for May for Bruce Springsteen, for example, he is announcing concerts in America at the moment - in the middle of a concert tour. 

We need to explore these things. I despair of people ruling things out before we even investigate them."
