Rules around ticketing systems will impact social dances in Kerry.
Matt McGranaghan, the spokesman for the Music and Entertainment Association of Ireland, was speaking about recently-imposed regulations around ticketing.
Patrons are required to purchase an electronic ticket at least an hour in advance to a venue or event where there will be dancing.
Matt McGranaghan says this regulation was aimed primarily at licenced premises, but can include venues where there is dancing, such as a community hall.
He says, while there is some confusion, there are ways to make the process easier.
