LIMERICK venues Dolan’s and the UCH have been shortlisted for a prized IMRO award.
The music rights organisation announced finalists in the seventh IMRO Live Music Venue of the Year Awards last week, with the finals to take place in Dublin on February 3.
Dolan’s and the UCH are nominated in the Munster Live Music Venue of the Year 2014 category, won by Crane Lane Theatre in Cork last year.
Cork venues Coughlan’s and De Barra’s - in Clonakilty - complete the category along with Siamsa Tire Theatre in Tralee.
Dolan’s are also nominated among 25 Irish venues for the IMRO National Live Music Venue of the Year, which will be decided upon by the public.
The venue took home a special commendation for Hot Press Live Music Venue of the Year at the IMRO awards last year, 20 years since the bar first opened on the Dock Road.
