John Meagher's 30 best Irish albums of all time

What are the great Irish albums and which of the recent crop could conceivably be described as classics already?

In today’s Day & Night – free with each copy of the Irish Independent – I attempt to answer those questions by naming the 30 best Irish albums ever made.

There is a mix of obvious choices – albums so good their absence would make such a list laughably redundant – and left-field entries that many might have forgotten about but should, I feel, be in the collections of any music lover.

But first, take a look at this short video as I lock horns with two of Ireland’s finest music writers – Nick Kelly and Eamon Sweeney – who have passionate views on which albums should make the cut.

Let the biggest ego win!
