Christy Moore will headline a highly-anticipated pilot gig at The Gleneagle INEC on Saturday, June 26.

The line-up for the event also includes singer-songwriter Susan O'Neill, traditional singer Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh and singer Jack L.

The gig at The Gleneagle, which will operate at a reduced capacity of 200 people, is one of a series of indoor and outdoor pilot events taking place around the country throughout June and July.

The pilot events, announced by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, have been sanctioned in order to test the logistics of how people can attend live events safely.

The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, said: "It has been a long and difficult 15 months for so many musicians, artists, venue operators, crew and audiences.

"I am delighted to announce the INEC gig, which is one in a series of pilot events my Department is providing to help us move towards a wider reopening of the live events sector.

"The line-up for the evening is fantastic and will help the Government to plan for the safe management of events whilst Covid is still circulating in our communities and build confidence in the guidance and event management protocols developed to keep everyone safe," she added.

"I am so excited that we are reopening our stages, concerts, sports, our country and I have no doubt everyone who is lucky enough to attend will have a fantastic evening."

Tickets for the gig at The Gleneagle INEC will be sold in pods of six and cost €39.50 each plus booking fees.

Tickets will not be sold individually. Each pod will be allocated a specific arrival time and a pre-allocated table.
