Killarney Will Leave Other Towns Green With Envy

This year’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations in Killarney will have an extra splash of green thanks to support from Fáilte Ireland which has provided funding of €65,000 – over the next three years – to help support and develop events in locations outside of Dublin.

Outgoing Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin, who launched the initiative in Killarney, said festivals a critical role in delivering brilliant visitor experiences and St Patrick’s Day provides a significant opportunity to attract overseas visitors to Kerry outside the traditional peak tourism season.
