Sounds from a Green World Top 20 Irish Albums 2016

2016 has been a bountiful year for Irish music particularly when it comes to album releases with over 200 albums released in this island this year. So trying to narrow down such quality output to the best 20 albums has been a tough task but we've managed to do our best with many of the bands and artists featured having visited Dolans over the past 12 months. 

Its also fair to say that 2016 has been a great year for Limerick music too and it's fantastic to have three albums from Limerick acts in the Top 20 - 'Be Honest and Fear Not' from windings, 'Let the Dead Bury the Dead' by Rusangano Family and our favourite Irish album of the year, the fantastic debut album from Bleeding Heart Pigeons 'Is'.
