That night over 30 young girls and some parents clambered aboard and spent the night.

Fintan Nelson, marketing manager for Sevens Cabs, spoke to the Democrat about Frankie’s kind gesture, “Frankie has always been involved in the community and is always looking for ways to help out in the town. He felt the girls would be safer, warmer and their parent’s minds more at ease if they had a suitable place to sleep that night and so he offered one of the company’s 52 seater buses.”

“Cars were sent past every half an hour to make sure everything was running smoothly and there were also a few parents present on the bus to keep an eye on things. All of the parents greatly appreciated Frankie’s gesture and were extremely grateful.

“We allowed the kids to have food and drinks on the bus and we were delighted when the bus was returned this morning in the same condition we had given it to them in with not one bit of rubbish anywhere to be seen.”

The next morning the girls were all eagerly waiting outside the shop and couldn’t contain their excitement when the doors were opened at 9am.

First in to buy her ticket was Keadie Gartland from Clan Cullen Park followed closely by over thirty more Bieber fans.

Shannon Vankeren was lucky enough to get a VIP ticket which means she will meet Justin himself next February. When the realisation dawned on her that she would be meeting the star she burst into tears and had to be comforted by her friend Megan Magill.

Thankfully all of Dundalk’s dedicated Bieber fans got tickets to the February show.
