The 1999 AerFi Killaloe Music Festival will be bigger and better than ever providing concert goers with five wonderful days of music in this unique and beautiful corner of Ireland. St. Flannan’s Cathedral, built between 1185 and 1225 on a site which had been in monastic use since the 6th century, provides the setting for the festival which this year will include concerts by the Irish Chamber Orchestra and visiting international artists.
