KIELTY HEADLINES COMEDY NIGHTS AT IRISH OPEN FRINGE FESTIVAL
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is delighted that Patrick Kielty is headline act for the comedy nights at the Irish Open Fringe Festival.
The Council is organising a number of events throughout the week in Newcastle town from Monday 25 to Sunday 31 May. These events are being organised for people in the District for the golf and for others who are looking for an alternative.
Events will kick off on the Monday night with the GAA Down Open (an Ulster select playing the rest of Ireland) at St Patrick’s Park from 7pm. Patrick Kielty will open the comedy nights which are being held on Friday and Saturday night from 6.45pm. Lurgan legend Micky Bartlett will warm up the crowd as we await the arrival of popular Dundrum man.
On Saturday night Northern Ireland’s Queen of Comedy, May McFettridge will be sure to have people laughing out loud.
May’s support is the cast of a new exciting Opera Love Golf Love, written by Brian Irvine and presented by the Northern Ireland opera. The comedy nights are selling out fast so be sure to book your spot early by contacting www.lolcomedy.co.uk
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Naomi Bailie said, “Newcastle and the surrounding areas will be buzzing over the week of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. The Council is hosting a range of events for everyone to coincide with the Major tournament. The Open is a fabulous opportunity to showcase the District and I would encourage residents as well as visitors to come to Newcastle and support the Open Fringe Festival.”
