Killarney Summerfest is applying to Kerry County Council for a licence to hold a number of events this year. The concerts which are yet to be named will once again be staged in Fitzgerald Stadium. Summerfest is seeking dates between June 1st and August 31st and expect crowds of up to 30,000 at each event.
The licence application can be viewed at the offices of Kerry County Council for a period of five weeks.
