Sun shines for music festival revellers
ABOUT 20,000 revellers descended on the west Clare resort of Kilkee for the inaugural Cois Fharraige Festival at the weekend.
Music fans who arrived at the sun-soaked resort were treated to performances from Badly Drawn Boy, Fun Lovin' Criminals, Ocean Colour Scene, Republic of Loose, The Blizzards and Roisin Murphy.
The 'chilled-out' atmosphere amongst the surfers and music fans ensured that there were no reported incidents of any trouble.
On Saturday night people were saying that the town was full like it never was before, but there were no reported incidents and the young people here are anxious that the festival comes back to Kilkee next year."
