Audiences worldwide will get a unique glimpse of an award winning Irish dance and music show tomorrow (Saturday) as their performance is live streamed online.

Guests will also attend the Gaelic Roots Show, created and produced by well-known local Niall O'Donoghue, in-person live at the Dúchas Comhaltas Centre at MTU Tralee.

Niall has been involved in both the entertainment and hotel industry since the 1980s and has won many awards and accolades since its debut.

It's the number one pre-sold show in Killarney with many worldwide tour operators booking seats two years in advance for their clients to guarantee that they do not miss out on the opportunity to experience the show when they visit the county.

It will feature the amazingly talented Gaelic Roots traditional band under the direction of musical director Conor Moriarty. Also performing will be the wonderful Elle Marie Dwyer and the show's cast of Irish dancers which include two-time world champion Sean Slemon.

"The event has been sold out for weeks and the demand was so great that we could have filled the venue 10 times over!" Niall said.

The talented group were approached by Kerry Comhaltas early in the summer and asked if they would be available to work alongside them to produce and perform a very special performance.

The two hour show has received five star reviews and testimonials and nightly standing ovations throughout the 2022 season.

"The demand for tickets grows every year, with most performances being sold out and the feedback we receive from tour companies is that Gaelic Roots was their client's overall most enjoyable, memorable and favourite experience during their vacation in Ireland."

Gaelic Roots in Concert at the Duchas Comhaltas Centre is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s live performance programming scheme with support from Kerry County Council.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
