Over the years we've had the privilege of welcoming a host of fantastic female musical talent to Dolans therefore we feel it's important to mark International Women's Day by celebrating just some of the talented ladies making music in Ireland today.
It was an almost impossible task to choose the 22 tracks featured but you can only fit so much music into 90 minutes. However we do feature Ailbhe Reddy, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Loah, Cathy Davey, SOAK and Maria Kelly just to mention a few. And of course there had to be a local focus with PowPig, whenyoung and Emma Langford getting things of to a rip-roaring Shannonside start.
And of course we'll be having our own celebration of female musical talent whilst remembering the sadly departed Dolores O'Riordan when we host the I Heart The Cranberries charity concert in aid of Adapt House and Limerick Mental Health on July 5th - tickets for which go on sale here in the morning.
For now though, grab a cuppa and sit back and enjoy the ladies and sounds from a green world.
