Galway welcomes filmmakers, buffs and lovers from all across the globe this week, from 10th to 15th July, to celebrate the 30th Galway Film Fleadh.

The stunning Irish soprano Celine Byrne is performing at the Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre this Saturday 14th July. Giving the drama and acoustics of an open air Italian theatre, you really could not put a more beautiful voice in a more gorgeous setting than that of the former quarry at Ballykeeffe. And with Saturday set to be a stunner, this gig promises to be a truly magical night. Check out the website for ticket info.
