Plans are being made to stage another festival at Palmerstown House in 2020, subject to permission being granted.

The recent Forever Young festival weekend was a trouble free event, according to Naas gardai.

It featured a number of groups and individual performers from the 1980s.

The line up included Heaven 17, The Human League, Holly Johnson, Bonny Tyler and China Crisis and Hazel O’Connor, to name a few.

The concert took place between July 5 and July 7, attracting 10,000 people each day.

No serious public incidents were reported and there were few complaints apart from some traffic delays.
