A new festival is taking place in Killarney this weekend.

The inaugural Killarney Mountain Festival began yesterday and continues until tomorrow, and aims to celebrate all things outdoor.

There’ll be talks, walking events, and films screenings over the weekend.

The festival is being run in close association with the world-renowned Kendal Mountain Festival in the lake district of the UK, with which Killarney is twinned.
