List: Irish Acts on Best of 2011 Lists

Once again, I’m compiling a mega list of every Irish act appearing on Year End Best of 2011 lists, from both Ireland and abroad. If you remember last year’s version, Conor O’Brien’s Villagers had about a million entries. But who will prove most popular this year?

Check out all the different Best of 2011 Lists from various Irish bloggers, writers, and publications here:
