Tipp Fm welcomed a star studded line up of Irish Country Music Artists to Clonmel for The ‘Tipp Fm Annual Country Music Awards 2012’ that took place at the Clonmel Park Hotel on Wednesday, May 23.
Top acts appearing included Gina Dale Hayes and the Champions, Crystal Swing, The Furey Brothers, The Willoughby Brothers, The Indians and many others.
The fully seated concert was a total sell out and the atmosphere was electric from when the show began at 8.00pm and finished at 1.30am. Queues formed outside the venue from early afternoon and Tipp Fm entertained with an outside broadcast live from the venue - bringing some of the atmosphere to the thousands of Tipp Fm listeners who could not get tickets to the ceremony as tickets sold out weeks in advance.
All funds raised on the night were in aid of The Pattaya Orphanage, Thailand and the Irish Wheelchair Assoc. (Tipperary Branch)
The M.C on the night was Tipp fm’s Fran Curry and many of Tipp fm’s much loved presenters, presented awards on the night along with Miss Sunday World Esme Mansergh Wallace and the Tipperary Rose Lisa Hickey. The night was an incredible success and plans are already underway for next year’s event.
