There has been much made about the legendary Point Theatre music venue in Dublin’s Dockland’s having the naming rights changed from the O2 arena to 3 after the mobile company was bought out.

However, one entertainment website,, who publicise details of where well-known bands are playing, have confused Dublin’s location altogether.

On their site, they have listed the new 3arena, Dublin, as being part of the United Kingdom, so fans travelling to see the likes of Enrique Iglesias or OneRepublic may get confused with what country they are to travel to.

The site made no such confusion with other Dublin venues such as the Olympia Theatre or The Academy, correctly listing them as being in Ireland.

Twitter users have taken to the social media site to express their bemusement at the site’s mistake.
