The only place to be for all the family this August weekend has to be Milltown.

Live music, free and open air for four nights, featuring the best acts in the trad business, including Sharon Shannon, Jiggy, Killarney band The Rising, as well as local talent in the festival club and in the local bars. Kids events include Thursday night parade and storytelling and games in the square on Sunday.

Young musicians will be welcome to perform in the festival club also. All the main acts play live at 9pm on the gig rig in the square. Another popular favourite in Milltown is the outdoor Céili, always a great spectacle and reaches back to the days of crossroads dances. Uí Bhriain are a huge draw for dancers and Féile Lughnasadh will be no exception, with a full programme of events on Sunday including the Food and Craft Fair, kids’ events and the Street Entertainment Competition which will all create a wonderful atmosphere in Milltown. See facebook and Instagram for full details.

It is no mean achievement to have brought such illustrious names to this mid-Kerry village. Organiser Owen O’Shea has fond memories of memorable nights, with crowds enthralled by the best in the business.

“Bringing the best to our town is a huge part of the work of our local Comhaltas group, and we are very proud to have provided such musical experiences to the people of Kerry,” he said “Milltown’s central location, excellent facilities and local services have made it a hugely popular location for events and this is a key aspect of its continuing success.”

“The owner could ring the Killarney Gardai station and provide details to be connected with me. To be reunited a description will be needed, such as the brand and designer and type of ring It’s quite an expensive ring so I’m really hoping to get it back to the right place.”
