Irish music had a fruitful creative period this year (and long may it continue), so this year’s list (the fifth annual albums poll) was hotly contested. Having said that, there were two clear frontrunners who swapped all the way til the end before one pulled away in the final stretch. A full list of results for both the Irish albums and songs of 2010 is linked at the bottom of the last page. 124 albums were voted for, by nearly 200 people so thanks to all of you. Special thanks to the bands who made compiling a list like this totally worthwhile and I hope you find something you missed throughout the year and support the band accordingly.
Special Thanks to Stephen Graham aka Leftovers/400 Facts for the illustration. If you’re still in the mood for some voting, The Digital Socket Awards are still open for one more day.
Irish Albums of the Year: 30-20 | 20-11 | 10-1
