27th and 28th of August, The Back Lane First Annual Art and Music Festival

The BACK LANE Arts Fest on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August.
The event will be an exciting mix of art and music, with Plein Air painting demonstrations around Killarney, FREE craft workshops for children, a Musical drinks reception on Saturday evening from 7pm until 9pm
The Back Lane Gallery opened last year when local artists came together under an initiative lead by well-known artist Deborah O'Keeffe. An Artist Cooperative was formed with 12 artists and craft workers. The Gallery is located in the historic surroundings of the old Milk market at New Market Lane behind Quills off High Street.

Their neighbors include the thriving ‘Pay as you Please’innovative and arty Restaurant. The fine work at ‘House of Photography’ is also here. This is surely Killarney's Artist Quarter, a truly unique centre for arts and music
So for a weekend of memorable activity, come on down.
