Blathnaid Treacy presents highlights from the annual Choice Music Awards which took place on Thursday, March 3rd in Dublin. For those that don't know it, it's pretty much the Irish equivalent to the UK's Mercury Prize in that it rewards this best album of the year. There was some tough competition this year too as Gavin James, HamsandwicH, Le Galaxie, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Soak and Villagers all battled it out for the top prize, but we reckon it went to a truly worthy winner. The night also featured performances from the nominees as well as the announcement of Irish Song of the Year.
