Some of the things banned from the Taylor Swift concert are ridiculous

Leave your tridents at home folks, otherwise they'll be confiscated...

Taylor Swift will play Croke Park on 15 and 16 June, which is Friday and Saturday next week, in what will surely be a great show for all who attend.


But, there's a long list of items you can't bring into the show so take note of below to ensure your entry into the arena is smooth.

Strict security checks will be in operation. Patrons are especially advised not to bring backpacks or large handbags as you may be refused entry or experience delays on entry.
