Clonmel Rugby Club to host Music Festival in July
Clonmel Rugby Football Club (RFC) is delighted to announce the club will host a live music festival at their Cashel Road Stadium from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th of July inclusive. The inaugural event kindly supported by Heineken offers three evenings of live musical entertainment across the weekend with Hermitage Green headlining on Saturday night supported by Oscar Blue. Local groups the Rugby Club Male Voice Choir together with D’Eagles and Jig Jam will top and tail what is set to be a massive weekend for the town of Clonmel and surrounding areas!
Tickets are now on sale via the Clonmel rugby club website www.clonmelrfc.ie and due to strict capacity limits, early booking for the gig of the season is advised to avoid disappointment.
The Rugby Club Male Voice Choir led by Joe Sheehan will ensure the festival weekend kicks off on exactly the right note on Friday 7th July. Gates open on Friday evening from 7pm with showtime at 8pm sharp. Tickets €20 are now available online.
Saturday 8th July will see Oscar Blue warm up the crowds for headline act Hermitage Green. ‘Catch them while you can’ is the advice from organisers as Hermitage Green’s will soon be jetting off on their international tour. Gates open from 5pm with bands performing at 6pm and 8pm consecutively, tickets €35 available online today.
A more relaxed festival feeling is expected on Sunday 9th July with music from new local Eagles tribute band D’Eagles followed by popular Fethard band JigJam bringing the curtain down on what looks set to be a super weekend for all. Tickets for Sunday are available online and priced at €30. Gates open from 5pm, D’Eagles performing at 6pm and JigJam live from 8pm.
Onsite food, drinks and merchandise will all be readily available each evening. Ample free carparking is also available onsite and adjacent to the grounds, with shuttle buses to and from Clonmel town centre also in operation. Patrons are advised to book early, use the shuttles where possible, come to the grounds early to really enjoy all that is to offer and help this progressive club to raise as much funds as possible.
The brainchild of incoming Clonmel RFC President, Johnny Sheehan, looks set to draw crowds from near and far to the club grounds. Commenting at the launch of the three-day festival he said “We are really looking forward to the festival and all the feedback received in the planning stages has been fantastic, now it’s time for that to translate into bookings! For anyone looking for a super weekend to look forward to complete with great live music and all the fun of a festival on your doorstep, these gigs are not to be missed! Every ticket purchased is ensuring the future of our beloved club and we are encouraging the entire community and those living in surrounding areas to go online to book your tickets today and support us.”
Sheehan continued, “Heineken and Irish rugby are synonymous with one another and Clonmel RFC is very grateful to this amazing brand for backing our inaugural Music Festival, without their support this event simply could not happen.”
