Events in Kilkenny

Kilkenny is a mecca for festivals & events. There is something for everyone and we are proud to be associated with all of them. 

Our beautiful Medieval City has become renowned country wide for its diverse range of festivals most of which take place on an annual basis and are going in pouparlity every year! Kilkenny’s intimate size and atmospheric setting make it an ideal location for the many festivals and events in which it has become so famous for. With music spilling onto the streets and venues all within walking distance of each other, the whole city celebrates. For festivals and events, Kilkenny has it all.

As well as world-renowned festivals such as Kilkenny Arts Festival, The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival and of course the award winning Savour Kilkenny. There are many smaller events happening throughout the year in both city and county, it is a great way to experience some local colour and very unusual traditions.

Marty was driving Tractors and Playing the Guitar at a very early age. By 18 he was working full time driving Tractors, Diggers and Lorries and gigging with a band at the weekends. Somewhere in the middle of all that he started writing & recording his own songs and making his own music videos.

Then came Hit the Diff, Marty wrote this song while out working on the Digger and Lorry and it was about his daily life on the road. It all started as a bit of craic and Marty published this video to You Tube in Late 2014, Marty Made the video from pictures which he took on his phone while out working and also includes pictures of Marty out driving from a very early age, This video took off immediately, and it didn’t end there.

Marty set up his own Record Label “Marty Mone Music” and he also Records, Mixes and Masters his own songs in his own Studio “The Plot Cottage Studio” which he purposely built to record his own music. Marty also shoots and edits his own music videos.
