The Clonmel Song Contest is now in its sixth year and is proving to be one of the more popular Irish-based song contests. Each entry will be individually judged on its merits by a group of qualified judges and ten finalists will go through to the Grand Final to perform in front of a live audience in Clonmel. The winning song will be picked that night.

When entries come in they are cataloged and given a number so when they reach the judges they are not identifiable by name.


  • 1st prize - 2500euro

  • 2nd prize - 1000euro

  • 3rd prize - 500euro
