The Gleneagle INEC Arena has this evening (Friday) announced a series of live outdoor gigs scheduled to take place throughout August and tickets are on sale now.

Artists lined up for the aptly titled 'Inside Out' gigs include the up-and-coming Lyra, Saint Sister, Jyellowl and Kerry Rising, featuring Cathal Flaherty, Seamus Harty, Lorraine Nash and Colin Andrew, each playing under the Future Sounds billing. Ham Sandwich, Aslan, Ryan Sheridan, The Blizzards, The High Kings, Damian Dempsey and Paddy Casey all make a welcome return to the Killarney venue under the Signature Acts billing. While country music stalwarts Derek Ryan, Mike Denver, Johnny Brady and Chantalle Padden, Cliona Hagan and Take It To The Limit round out the line-up of gigs which kick off on Sunday, August 1.

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.

The series of gigs is being funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Live Performance Support Scheme (LPSS).

SAFE RETURN

“We’ve had to really think outside the box in order to make a safe return to live music performance and help get our colleagues in the live entertainment sector back to work," Mark Egan, Director of Gleneagle INEC Arena, said.

"These gigs would not be financially viable under normal circumstances, but thanks to the LPSS scheme we now have 20 live acts lined up to play to intimate audiences of just 200 people per gig.”

The Live Performance Support Scheme was introduced to assist commercial venues, producers and promoters plan live performances across the country over the summer months, with a total of 237 organisations benefiting from the scheme.

The main objective of this scheme is to provide significant employment and well-being opportunities across the live entertainment sector as well as supporting the generation of high-quality artistic output for the general public.

GUIDELINES

The 'Inside Out' gigs are subject to Government guidelines, which currently allow for 200 hundred people to attend outdoor events. Tickets will be sold in pods of six and are non-transferable. Each pod will be allocated a specific arrival time and a pre-allocated, socially distanced table. Face masks are required when arriving at and vacating the venue. Gates will open at 7pm to allow for staggered arrival times and the concert will begin at 8.15pm. Each pod must arrive together at their allocated time. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

In order to facilitate contract tracing contact details for all attendees will be collected and all attendees will be required to have their smartphone switched on and the HSE COVID App installed. Customers are asked not to attend the concert if they have any symptoms of COVID-19. In this scenario, tickets will be fully refundable.

A newly established Patient Advocacy Service is offering support to people in the Kerry area who want to make a complaint about the care they have received in a public hospital.

The service provides free, independent and confidential information and support to people making a formal complaint about their care in a Health Service Executive (HSE) funded public acute hospital.

People in the Kerry area looking for support can contact the Patient Advocacy Service confidential helpline on 0818 293003 to speak to a trained advocate who will help them to get information on the HSE’s complaints investigation process, called ‘Your Service, Your Say’.

The professionally trained independent advocate will support and empower the person making the complaint, with the aim of highlighting their views and concerns.

The advocate will explain to the person how to write a formal complaint and what to include in it. They will also help the person prepare for meetings with the HSE about their complaint, and they will help the person explore their options following a response from the HSE to their complaint.

“Until now, people in Kerry and across Ireland who experienced difficulties in the Irish health service often felt there was nowhere for them to turn,” Service Manager for the Patient Advocacy Service, Claire Lehane, said.

GUIDANCE

“The newly established Patient Advocacy Service offers patients the guidance and information they need to make a complaint when they are unhappy with the care they receive. It is free, independent and run by our professionally trained patient advocates who will use their compassion and knowledge to guide people through the HSE complaints process.”

The helpline is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 4pm, including lunchtimes. You can also email info@patientadvocacyservice.ie or for more information see patientadvocacyservice.ie.

The Kerry-Dublin air route returned to the skies for the first time in nearly seven weeks today (Wednesday).

Budget airline Ryanair has taken over the route following the collapse of Stobart Air on June 12.

At around 1pm, one of Ryanair’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft landed at the airport after completing its 50 minute journey for Dublin.

Less than 25 minutes later it was back in the sky again for its return journey to the capital.

The flight will operate once a day until September 1 when the frequency will increase to twice daily.

“We are happy to report a positive start to the service which has been absent since early June,” the airport’s CEO John Mulhern told the Killarney Advertiser. “Ryanair intends to operate the route once a day until the end of August and has committed to restoring a twice-daily service from September.”

The route is operated on a commercial basis by Ryanair. Since 2011, Aer Lingus, through its subsidiary Aer Lingus Regional or its partners Aer Arran and Stobart Air operated the flight as a Government support Public Service Obligation (PSO). Previously, between 2008 and 2011 Ryanair operated the route on a commercial basis but withdrew at short notice as it could not make it profitable.
