Finalists chosen for Irish Music Month’s Local Hero Award

The five finalists for the Irish Music Rights Organisation’s Irish Music Month’s Local Hero Award have been selected.

They are Carrie Baxter (WLR), Chameleon (98FM), Fintan McKahey (96FM), Leah Moran (Spin 1038) and Mia Yermeche (FM104).

Unfortunately, OceanFM’s entry, ‘Whatever Suits’, didn’t make the cut for the final at the Academy in Dublin on Thursday next, November 18th.

The five finalists will compete for the crown of Local Hero which brings with it a prize of €5,000 in cash, professional recording equipment and the release of a single
