Good news for all those heading to Indiependence on the August Bank Holiday Weekend. The festival has been granted a late bar licence by Fermoy District Court, meaning the alcohol will be served at the bars until 1am. Shane Dune, festival organiser, had this to say to the Independent: "Naturally we're delighted to have been granted the licence. This gives the adults who attend the festival the opportunity to buy a drink on site as the would normally in any pub".

Tickets are still available for the three day festival.
