One of Kilkenny’s main outdoor entertaining spots has a special birthday this year.

Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre turns 21 and who better to help them mark the occasion than our KCLR Breakfast presenter John Walsh who’s famed for singing Happy Birthday on the show.

John’s also a lover of music and the local arena’s hosted a fair share in its time, including home-grown, global talent Ronan Tynan as well as Moya Brennan, Aslan, The Saw Doctors, Hermitage Green, Eddi Reader and many more.
