The Róisín Dubh and the Town Hall Theatre have both been shortlisted for the 2010 IMRO National Live Music Venue of the Year Award.
The Galway public can support and vote for the venues by voting for them online as the overall winner will be selected, in part, from the public vote.
The Róisín and the Town Hall are also nominated for awards in the separate category of IMRO Connacht Live Music Venue of the Year Award.
The awards recognise the Irish venues which deliver the very best standards in live music entertainment. Venues have been judged on their ambience, staging, sound and lighting facilities, the diversity of their music programming, the staff and management, and the work they undertake in promoting the venue and its programme of music events.
To vote for the Róisín Dubh or Town Hal, log on to www.surveymonkey.com/s/MTW7LVL before Thursday November 25 and cast a vote for your top choice across all venues shortlisted in all categories.
The result of this public vote will be added to the IMRO members votes and the venue which polls the most support will be awarded the IMRO National Live Music Venue of the Year. One voter will be chosen at random to receive a prize of an iPod Touch.
The IMRO Live Music Venue of the Year Awards 2010 will take place on Wednesday December 1 at IMRO Headquarters in Dublin.
