ALLTOGETHERNOW: Heavy festival traffic expected in south Kilkenny
By COLIN BARTLEY
ONE of the biggest music and culture festivals of the year kicks off today just a puck of a sliotar away from Kilkenny.
ALLTOGETHERNOW is in its second year, after earning rave reviews from festival-goers for its first incarnation in 2018.
Held in the stunning grounds of Curraghmore Estate in Portlaw, the festival takes place just across the River Suir from Fiddown and Piltown.
This year’s headliners are The National, Orbital, Father John Misty, Patti Smith, John Grant, and Hot Chip.
The festival is a sell-out and over 20,000 festival-goers are set to descend on the bohemian site.
Traffic coming off the M9 will be diverted up through Mooncoin and into Fiddown and then to Carrick-on-Suir, so expect higher volumes of traffic in the area.
Gates open at 12pm.
