Irish Post Music Awards Launched

Nine Awards & 10 live Irish music acts under one roof for one night only | Thursday, June 7 | INEC, Killarney, Co. Kerry

Top music acts from Ireland will launch the inaugural Irish Post Music Awards this summer. Supported by IMRO, The Irish Post Music Awards will take place on June 7 in the INEC Killarney, Co. Kerry. The Music Awards will build on the success of previous Irish Post events by bringing the best Irish performers to music fans in Ireland. The live music event follows the success of The Irish Post Country Music Awards last August and The Irish Post awards in November.

“Music is one of our most alluring and captivating exports and has proved a powerful cultural connection to Ireland for the Irish abroad. We are delighted to be showcasing the best of Irish talent and sharing it with a global audience this summer. The Irish Post Music Awards will bring the Irish home to the beautiful lakes of Killarney on a summer’s night – exactly what many Irish emigrants down through the years would have dreamt about.” Irish Post Editor-in-Chief Siobhan Breatnach

“2017 was an incredible year for Irish music. A wealth of emerging talent made serious inroads in various international territories around the world and in so doing reaching new audiences each step of the way. The Irish Post Music Awards recognise and champion some of our finest songwriters and performers and IMRO is delighted to be associated with these prestigious music awards.” Keith Johnson, Director of Marketing & Membership, IMRO
