About the Award: At a time when it is very easy to go to an awards/trophy shop and pick up a chunk of granite and put someones name on it, the membership of the Irish Music Association has decided to go with awards that are made with art and symbolism. Made by The Irish hand, materials are incorporated that represent the Irish and Ireland. Elements Connamara Marble, Durmast/Sessile White Oak, crystal, secret compartments, and IMA authentication is what makes up this year's Irish Music Award.
(Special thanks to Alan Baker from Walsh's Connemara Marble at Lissoughter for getting the carvings to us on time. Special thanks to Dan Kenslow for his knowledge and hard work in executing the awards assembly.)
Yearly Conference: A yearly conference for our IMA membership to determine policy of the association, the awards, and discussion of Irish music, artists, etc., is held each year before the awards presentation.
