Ok, so i'm getting ready to buy tickets for WWE on friday morning in Dulbin for Smackdown (come on Austin will be there) and i know they are going to be gone in minutes and i really want to get the best possible seats.

The mistake i made last time was i went right for ground floor and they were all gone so now i will try to go right for 'Best available'.

Now i was wondering if any of you ticketmaster vets have any tips regards these fast sellouts -ie- where about should i keep refreshing the page the hour of tickets going on sale, should it be the ticket sales page or the lisings page? I'm buying online with a 64k connection which is fast enough for me, loading takes about 3-5 seconds, but broadband will be on in a flash. Any tips would be grateful. Thanks.

Local radio stations often times are given passwords that let people by tickets earlier than the general public. Go on the websites of your local radio stations that young people in Ireland listen to(here in the US it would be alternative Rock stations). Try giving them a call as well.

My advice would be to go to a ticketmaster outlet, and not trying to buy them online, or better yet, find somebody in a town a ways away to buy them for you, since the merchants where they are at wont have a ton of people trying to get to them.
It worked for my friend buying U2 Tickets a few years back, had her mom in Cincinatti buy them for the show here in St Louis.

My trick is to call a Ticketmaster outlet in a different city.

If you can find one that doesn't have anything major going on sale that day, it's easier than trying to phone in to the one in your city.

Thanks for tips guys but i got them online last Friday, about 30 rows back which is ok. The reason i didn't wait outside the arena for tickets is because the last time they went on sale there, only the first 2 people got served and the rest (about 100 more) were turned away after waiting for hours. I got them 5 mins after they went on sale becuase i kept reloading the page from 5 mins before they went on sale but the ticket page never came up.
