Discussion: The Ticket’s 50 Best Irish Acts right now.

Jim Carroll and co. over at the Ticket have made a list of their top 50 Irish acts on the scene currently.

There were three qualifying conditions. (1) Solo acts had to have been born on the island of Ireland or to hold an Irish passport. (2) In the case of bands, half or more of the members had to have been born on the island of Ireland or to hold an Irish passport. (3) Bands had to have recorded or released music since January 2008, or to have played a gig since January 2008.

You can read the list in full here:

There are many ommissions, which have already been pointed out (even by me):
But no Gemma Hayes, Mumblin’ Deaf Ro, Tenaka? Ricer higher than Mick Flannery? Republic of Loose? etc. etc.
