The first annual three-day Inis Fest gets underway in Ennis tonight with Damien Dempsey, Hermitage Green, Delorentos and a host of local acts performing.
Ennis Showgrounds has been transformed into a world-class music venue with capacity for 3000 people, a big top tent, a leisure area filled with food and drink plus plenty of entertainment.

Nathan Carter, Mundy and Rackhouse Pilfer perform on Saturday June 27th for INIS Country while it is the turn of local acts on Sunday June 28th with Sarah McTernan heading the lineup for the free family music event that gives some local acts the opportunity to perform on a big stage.
