Wine trade duo save the day at AC/DC gig

A pair of employees from Santa Rita Estates have been unmasked as the mystery men who came to the rescue of some beleaguered AC/DC fans.

The Chilean firm’s export manager Andrés Alvarado and key accounts director Michael Taylor overheard Emma Carr and Aoife Gilmartin asking a police officer at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium for help after discovering they had been sold fake tickets for last Wednesday’s gig.

The pair stepped in and offered two of their own spare tickets for free, but despite sitting next to each other during the concert, the women never found out the identity of their rescuers.

“The tickets they had were all together, so we were sitting beside them and took the picture,” Carr told the Irish Mirror. “But both our phones died and we got no contact details of them, and when the concert ended they were just gone.

After the gig, the women shared a picture of the good Samaritans on Facebook in a bid to discover their names and thank them properly. The photo has since been picked up and shared widely across the Irish media and other social networking sites, eventually leading to the identification of the wine trade do-gooders.
