GUEST,Peter Laban RTE Folk Awards 2018 (32) RE: RTE Folk Awards 2018 24 Oct 18

Perhaps the notion that someone in RTE#s light entertainment division came up with the thought 'well, it works for the BBC, let's have a go at folk awards' and apparently implemented it without a clear vision is what makes the whole thing feel so wrong.

I am not one for competitions and award thingies but in fairness, TG4's Gradam has consistently given recognition to musicians who well deserved it and fair play to Andy Irvine for getting a lifetime achievement in this one but 'folk awards' reeks of confusion and something cobbled together on the fly.
