Fair play to Whelans – now in it’s 25th year of showcasing amazing talent from across the country, as well as from across the globe, and now scooping the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Hot Press Live Music Venue of the Year awards last night.
It’s been a great year for the venue, selling out many internationally recognised acts such as Ed Sheeran and Damien Rice. \it has also recently given itself a new lick of paint on the outside and looks as fresh as ever!
I’m sure heads are very sore today in light of receiving the award. 5th on Teeling, the Sligo based music venue which received a nod for promoting the local scene in the North West, tweeted a picture of the award.
Awww, we’re so proud of you guys!
