The biggest music award in Ireland is edging ever closer.
Coming to the end of a hugely productive year for Irish music, the longlist for albums eligible for the RTÉ Choice Music Prize has been announced.
Following deliberation from the judging panel the list will be chopped down into a more manageable shortlist, whereby they will then vote on who they believe should win the coveted award.
Some of the albums that are likely to feature on the short list after said deliberation are ‘Stride’ from Jafaris, ‘Dogrel’ from Fontaines D.C. and Mango X MathMan’s ‘Casual Work’
