Talented duo to represent Finglas

Tommy and Jimmy are hoping to do Finglas proud at the Croke Park event.

MUSICAL duo Tommy McPartlan and Jimmy Moran will be flying the flag for Finglas at the Irish Youth Music Awards National Day and Education Hub taking place at Croke Park on Saturday, May 11.

The Education Hub will feature workshops and masterclasses and it marks the launch of Youth Work Ireland week with other activities and events happening around Ireland.

Top acts hosting classes and performing at include The Riptide Movement and The Academic. 

The National Day will also feature musicians aged 12-19, performing across two stages throughout the day with Tommy and Jimmy tacking to the stage as part of these performances.

Tommy and Jimmy will be representing the Finglas Youth Resource Centre and are looking forward to the experience.

“We have been working hard with our team learning skills like video production, graphic design, stage management and public relations,” they said.

Irish Youth Music Awards Director, Barry Lennon, said Education Hub had a great line-up and would create a space for young people to get hands on advice, skills and knowledge about the creative and music industries from some of Ireland's best acts.

“We believe it’s so important to support and develop the music and creative industries in Ireland and provide pathways for our future cultural entrepreneurs to develop,” he said.

“We are honoured to be a part of this through the work we do in our IYMAs hubs across the island of Ireland and at our National Day in Croke Park, which is all ages and open to everyone to attend.”

Director of Music RTÉ 2FM, Alan Swan, said the event was a vital part of RTÉ 2FM’s mission to support young musicians, songwriters and producers.

“We have started to see acts that have been involved in the programme to now be part of RTÉ 2FM’s content,” he added.

The winner of the Irish Youth Music Awards will win recording time in a recording studio, a recording session in RTÉ 2FM’s Studio 8 and a full backline provided by Music Maker Dublin.

They will also produce an album of their own original tracks released on physical CD with a professional design.
