Nialler9’s top 50 Irish songs of 2016

Nialler9’s top 50 Irish songs of 2016


In association with:


2016 Best of | Best albums | Best songs | Irish albums | Irish songs | Club tracks | Guest selections

Here are my top 50 tunes made from Irish artists in 2016. If you discover something you love, do buy a record direct or from a record shop (Tower Records has two shops in Dublin on O’Connell Street and Dawson Street). Go to a gig, go to many gigs ( a good New Year’s resolution), tell your friends and support the many, many Irish musicians featured here and not featured here who are making great art.

My list of songs from 90 to 51 is here
