Newry, Mourne and Down District Council are delighted that Patrick Kielty is headline act for the comedy nights at the Irish Open Fringe Festival. fringe6The Council are organising a number of events throughout the week in Newcastle town from Monday 25th to Sunday 31st May. These events are being put on for people in town 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 start off 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 Patrick Kielty.

May’s support is the cast of a new exciting Opera LoveGolffLove, written by Brian Irvine and presented by Northern Ireland opera.
