Around 5,000 people are expected to descend on Milltown on the August bank holiday weekend for the Annual Fleadh. The event which will be launched later tonight is worth around 100,000 euro to the area. Kerry Olympian Gillian O Sullivan will perform the official launch in what will be her final public appearance before heading to Athens. One of the organisers Bernard Cronin says the event is a huge boost to Milltown.
The artist and former TV host is seeking the support of Kerry County Council in his bid to contest the Presidential election. http://media.radiokerry.ie/upload/radiokerry/audio/kevinsharkey.mp3
