The Blizzards will perform at the Gleneagle INEC on Friday, August 27

A SERIES of live outdoor gigs have been scheduled to take place throughout August at the Gleneagle INEC Arena in Killarney with tickets on sale now.

Ham Sandwich, Aslan, Ryan Sheridan, The Blizzards, The High Kings, Damian Dempsey and Paddy Casey all make a welcome return to the Killarney venue while country music stalwarts Derek Ryan, Mike Denver, Johnny Brady and Cliona Hagan are all Killarney bound.

Up and coming artists lined up for the aptly titled Inside Out gigs include Lyra, Saint Sister, Jyellowl and Kerry Rising, featuring Cathal Flaherty, Seamus Harty, Lorraine Nash and Colin Andrew.

The concerts will take place on a specially constructed outdoor stage located on grounds adjacent to the Gleneagle INEC Arena

The concerts will take place on a specially constructed outdoor stage located on grounds adjacent to the Gleneagle INEC Arena. In line with government guidelines, 200 tickets will be available per gig sold in pods of six.

Each pod will be allocated a specific arrival time and a pre-allocated, socially distanced table. Facemasks are required when arriving at and vacating the venue.

The series of gigs is being funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

Mark Egan, Director of Gleneagle INEC Arena said: “These gigs would not be financially viable under normal circumstances but thanks to the live performance support scheme we now have 20 live acts lined up to play to intimate audiences of just 200 people per gig.”
