when the read­ers went to vote. Both Deloren­tos and The Lost Brothers pulled in a good deal of votes from read­ers in var­i­ous cat­e­gories, es­pe­cially Best Band, Best Ir­ish Act and Best Al­bum.

There was also sec­tion wins for Leonard Co­hen ( Popular Prob­lems was your choice for Best Roots’ al­bum), Blue Eyed Hawk (the choice of jazz fans for Un­der the Moon), Steven Isserlis and Robert Levin (best clas­si­cal al­bum for their record­ing of Beethoven’s Cello Sonatas) and David Bowie’s Sue (Or In a Sea­son Of Crime) for Video of the Year.


As you’d ex­pect, there was a broad range of an­swers when it came to the read­ers’ mo­ment of the year. When it came to mu­sic, live shows by The Gloam­ing at St Can­ice’s Cathe­dral in Kilkenny and Por­tishead at the Elec­tric Pic­nic gar­nered the most men­tions over­all, the rest of the en­tries re­flected the broad­est pos­si­ble sweep of what made you smile, punch the air and go “yes” in 2014. Leav­ing aside the men­tions of en­gage­ments, wed­dings, births and protest marches, here’s a se­lec­tion of your high­lights from the past 12 months.

Ceil­iúradh at London’s Royal Al­bert Hall; Ed Sheeran on the Toy Show; Bob Dy­lan singing Long & Wasted Years at Dublin’s O ; Fly­ing Lo­tus at For­bid­den Fruit; Love/Hate (in­clud­ing Nidge’s run­ners); James Vincent McMor­row at Elec­tric Pic­nic; An­nie Mac at Elec­tric Pic­nic; John Grant; “Ap­ple pro­vid­ing me with a won­der­ful free U2 al­bum”; “U2 re­al­is­ing that peo­ple do not want their rub­bish even if it’s free”; Ade­bisi Shank’s farewell; Damien Rice’s come­back; The Na­tional at Dublin’s Iveagh Gar­den; Young Fa­thers at Dublin’s IMMA; “meet­ing Harry Styles”; Panti Bliss’s speech; Printer Clips at Dublin’s NCH; En­sem­ble Eriu live. Many thanks to all who voted. And the win­ners are . . .
