Legal action is being taken by locals against the organisers of a festival at Weston Airport, scheduled to be headlined by Liam Gallagher.

The Samhain Festival, the first of its kind at the airport on the Kildare/Dublin border, is due to take place on on Sunday October 29th.

It is being organised by Festival Republic.
