Nathan Carter is the brightest young star to hit Ireland in recent years. Nathan was born in Liverpool in 1990 and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots. Nathan was born to perform and at the tender age of four he began to learn to play the accordion, in a few short years he went on to become the head chorister in the Liverpool Boys Choir, touring the world and even singing for the Pope. He made regular trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil s and resulted in medals for the accordion and for singing. This resulted him in becoming a member of the Liverpool Ceili band where he played the accordion and piano and in no time at all he began to play solo gigs in London and Liverpool along with the occasional show in Ireland. On a trip to Donegal in 2009 he met up with songwriter John Farry, who was hugely impressed with Nathan s ability and in a few short months his dream of performing with his own band became a reality. Since then Nathan has recorded 3 albums with a 4th of the way, won 18 awards at ceremonies in Ulster, Leinster, Munster and Connaught. He is packing out venues and ballrooms all across Ireland and has become one of the must see Irish acts. Do not miss your opportunity to see Nathan Carter Live!!!

Jimmy Carr is coming to the INEC Killarney with his new show Funny Business. Jimmy s been described as the hardest working man in comedy. Which, let s face facts, is not that impressive. It s like being the Tallest Dwarf or the Healthiest Glaswegian. Really not that big a deal. Live comedy is what Jimmy does best. His stand up achievements to date include a British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-Up Tour and a Perrier Award nomination. On stage, he s even funnier and even more outrageous and Funny Business is his brand new stand up show.

Walking On Cars took their initial baby steps in 2010. The Dingle-based five school friends singer lyricist Patrick Sheehy, pianist Sorcha Durham, lead guitarist Dan Devane, bass guitarist Paul Flannery and drummer Evan Hadnett dived headfirst into the creative pool, immediately writing quality songs with ease. Within a year, Walking On Cars had gained national prominence not only by winning the Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2012 competition but also through extensive radio play of their infectiously melodic debut single, Catch Me If You Can, which reached no.27 in the Irish Charts and stayed there for over 20 weeks. The song also went to No.1 in the iTunes chart. The band s second single, Two Stones, reached no.12 in the Irish charts.
