Mallow GAA Complex will ring to the sound of the best of country music this Sunday as the venue hosts the inaugural North Cork Country Music festival.
The event will be held in the open air, and will kick off at 1pm when Declan Nerney takes the stage. He will be followed by Louise Morrissey at 2pm, Jimmy Buckley at 3pm, Lisa McHugh at 4pm, and the roof of the stand should lift at 5.30pm when Nathan Carter makes his appearance. Gates will open at 11.30am, and there will be free parking for all festival-goers. There will be ample unreserved seating at the buggy and child-friendly event, with under 16s getting in free once accompanied by a paying adult. A large dance floor will also be in place, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes. The concert will also have a food and alcohol licence.
Barry John Ryan, organiser of the festival commented, “Mallow is at the crossroads of Munster. It is one hour from Limerick, Killarney, Dungarvan, Thurles and Clonmel, and 25 minutes from Cork city. It has a unique position on the Dublin-Cork railway line as well as the Dublin-Kerry line, and as a result we expect an influx of people from all over Ireland. The GAA Sports Complex is easily accessible from the town, being just a safe 20 minutes walking distance from the centre.” Tickets priced at €25 are available on, via the ticket hotline on 022-50707, or at the gate on the day.
