The anticipation is palpable - for not only for cast and crew - but also the audience as one local show is set to finally return to the stage this weekend.

The stage is all set at Killarney Racecourse as this Sunday night Celtic Steps The Show makes comeback at 8pm ahead of a busy season.

The popular show, which has been a notable absence on the Killarney entertainment scene for the past two years due to nationwide restrictions, will return to enthral guests with a sensational production of Ireland’s best loved songs and stories, traditional music and dance, featuring the country’s most celebrated musicians and world champion Irish dancers.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be finally making a comeback to the stage and to our home of the Killarney Racecourse this weekend," David Rea of Celtic Steps said.

"It has been a tough two years of setbacks and uncertainties, but the time feels right and we are hopeful for the season ahead."

Co-producer of Celtic Steps, Sean Murphy, added that they have been getting huge support in anticipation of the show's return.

“The feedback and support that we have been getting so far from tour operators and agents as well as businesses locally is that guests are genuinely excited to come back to Killarney and experience all that the town has to offer and we are certainly ready to entertain them."

Meanwhile, the cast and crew of the show have been delighting fans across social media with a series of videos of their behind-the-scenes preparations to coincide with the countdown to the big opening night this Sunday.

Celtic Steps The Show will run six nights a week, Sunday to Friday, at the Killarney Racecourse, from April 3 and five nights a week from Sunday to Thursday at the Brandon Conference Centre in Tralee from May 3.

All tickets are now available online at www.celticsteps.ie.

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.
