Louise Hewitt from Clonmel has been selected to represent Tipperary in the Irish Youth Music Awards in Dublin in April.
Coralie McNamara, also from Clonmel, was delighted to have her song titled ‘Summertime’ selected.
Youth Work Ireland and Tipperary Regional Youth Service (TRYS) in association with Hot Press, Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) and Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) hosted the 7th annual Irish Youth Music Awards in Oola Community Hall recently.
Ten young music acts from all over the county took part in the regional selection night.
“This is the first year Tipperary has taken part in this national event,” explained Lisa McGrath, Youth Worker, TRYS. “All the acts performed their own original material and the audience was blown away by the amazingly talented songwriters and musicians”.
If the Tipp team is successful they’ll spend a week in the Ashtown Recording Studios in Dublin recording an album of their own material.
