200 guests arrived and thoroughly enjoyed one of the first indoor gigs which was sanctioned by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media in order to test the logistics of how people can attend live events safely.

Concert goers - seated in pods of six with each pod allocated a table and arrival time - were wowed by the legendary Christy Moore who headlined the highly-anticipated event on Saturday.

And it was without a doubt a success with support from singer-songwriter Susan O'Neill, traditional singer Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, and showman Jack L.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.
