The Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) has announced the shortlist for the seventh annual IMRO Live Music Venue of the Year Awards. The awards recognise the Irish venues which deliver the very best standards in live music entertainment. Hundreds of venues across Ireland qualified for the awards and more than 10,000 IMRO members were asked to vote for their top choices in an online poll.

The IMRO Live Music Venue of the Year Awards acknowledge the immense efforts made by music venues across Ireland, through the provision of world class entertainment for their customers, their vital contribution to local economies and the significant role they play in providing a public platform for Irish songwriters and performers.
