Aslan announce date in the INEC Killarney on July 26th    


With Aslan selling out 2 shows in Dublin’s Olympia theatre in May in record time, the band have decided to add a 3rd and final date .

The band are very aware of the loyal support they have received from people countywide and with this in mind this exclusive 3rd show is taking place outside of Dublin in the INEC Killarney on Saturday 26th July.
Aslan feel the INEC Killarney... is the perfect venue to add the 3rd and final date for 2014 as it will accommodate fans from all over the country and of course those of you from Dublin who could not secure a ticket for the Olympia.
With defining hits such as Crazy World, This Is and She’s So Beautiful, Aslan have firmly established their place in Irish rock history. Fronted by the enigmatic Christy Dignam, the band crashed onto the Irish music scene in 1986 with the release of debut single This Is, and quickly followed Please Don't Go and Loving Me Lately the same year.
In February 2013 Christy Dignam, was diagnosed with cancer and the band stopped performing live shows. With the exception of the Night For Christy which saw performances from many of Irelands best performers including U2, Bressie, Danny O Rielly, Ryan Sheridan and Horslips, to name a few, ASLAN have not performed as a band for over a year.
Christy, having recently received the news that his treatment is working, has decided that now is the time for him and ASLAN to get back to doing what they do best and do a limited number of live shows. With this in mind the band will be releasing their new single I Need a Little Time and will perform on the Late Late Show on May 23rd.
Do not miss this exclusive opportunity to see Aslan in one of their only performances of  2014.

Stand -up Comedian Conal Gallen brings his first ever comedy play to The INEC Killarney on Friday July 4th 2014!    



Conal Gallen has established himself as one of the most successful touring Irish comedians. He has been selling out Theatres across the country for the past 8 years, breaking box office records, year in and year out. But the Funny man takes his hilarious humour to a whole new level in this side-splitting 2 Act comedy farce.


The action takes place in the household of Bridie and Willie Murphy, a couple who have fought the war of marriage, for over 30 years!
It is a love story unlike any other. Wandering eyes, wandering feet, wandering hands.....It's all here! Bodies get tangled, food orders mixed up and money gets moved with the addition of just one letter to a cheque - a big cheque too! Join Bridie, Willie, Dick and Cynthia as this tale of passion and intrigue unfolds!

As Conal says himself, “To do this play, I really had to sit back and make the decision to step back from my live stand up shows. This was a hard decision to make; I have spent a long time, working very hard, building up my Stand–up tour. It has been my bread and butter all my life. To take a break from this to pursue the comedy play is a major risk. For it to be as successful as my stand-up comedy career, I have to give the play 100% of my time and effort.”


Tickets priced from €27.65 including booking fee on sale now via Ticketmaster and
Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult.

Rascal Flatts play the INEC Killarney on Saturday 13th July. 



Since their musical debut in 2000, Rascal Flatts has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts. Rascal Flatts is the most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more. As one of the hottest-selling acts on tour in any genre, they’ve sold over 7 million concert tickets, and counting.

The journey began when Jay and Gary, from the Columbus, Ohio, area, and Joe Don, from Picher, Oklahoma, teamed up in a club in Nashvilles Printers Alley. “We knew right away we had something special,” says Jay, “even if we were the only ones who ever got to hear it.” They weren’t. They quickly earned a record deal and talent, drive, and great song selection did the rest. Their list of hits constitutes one of the great bodies of work in modern country music, with "These Days," "Bless the Broken Road," "What Hurts The Most," "My Wish," "Take Me There" and "Here Comes Goodbye" as just the tip of an ever-expanding iceberg. Their performances are state-of-the art, house-rocking extravaganzas, sold-out excursions into musical excitement that have included as opening acts some of this generation's great artists, including Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean.
